CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Evolutionary Topology Optimization of Continuum Structures treads new ground
with a comprehensive study on the techniques and applications of evolutionary
structural optimization (ESO) and its later version bi-directional ESO (BESO)
methods. Since the ESO method was first introduced by Xie and Steven in 1992
and the publication of their well-known book Evolutionary Structural
Optimization in 1997, there have been significant improvements in the
techniques as well as important practical applications. The authors present
these developments, illustrated by numerous interesting and detailed examples.
They clearly demonstrate that the evolutionary structural optimization method
is an effective approach capable of solving a wide range of topology
optimization problems, including structures with geometrical and material
nonlinearities, energy absorbing devices, periodical structures, bridges and
buildings. Presents latest developments and applications in this increasingly
popular & maturing optimization approach for engineers and architects; Authored
by leading researchers in the field who have been working in the area of ESO
and BESO developments since their conception; Includes a number of test
problems for students as well as a chapter of case studies that includes
several recent practical projects in which the authors have been involved;
Accompanied by a website housing ESO/BESO computer programs at
http://www.wiley.com/go/huang and test examples, as well as a chapter within
the book giving a description and step-by-step instruction on how to use the
software package BESO2D.
Evolutionary Topology Optimization of Continuum Structures will appeal to
researchers and graduate students working in structural design and
optimization, and will also be of interest to civil and structural engineers,
architects and mechanical engineers involved in creating innovative and
