Cost optimization of column layout design of reinforced concrete buildings Digital Commons

Chapter


Abstract


  • For the design of structural systems, it is often of interest to determine the general

    geometric layout of the system that most efficiently supports the expected design

    actions. Such a design can be done by optimizing the overall layout of the structural

    system as well as the topology of the structure. Layout optimization is probably

    the most difficult class of problems in structural optimization. It is also a very

    important one, because it results in much higher material savings than sizing optimization

    of cross sections (Rozvany, 1992). In a comprehensive structural optimization

    process, selecting an appropriate preliminary geometric layout is of

    enormous importance, as it influences all the succeeding stages of the design

    procedure.
