The design of complex systems, consisting of several subsystems and with performance specifications from multiple disciplines, in parallel was addressed in a previous publication using a Robust Parallel Design (RPD) approach. In this paper, RPD is extended and a Probabilistic Robust Parallel Design (PRPD) approach is proposed to handle cases where the(More)
Design optimization of a class of plane trusses called the N-shaped truss (NST) is addressed. The parametric model of NST presented is intended for real-world application, avoiding simplifications of the design details that compromise the applicability. The model, which includes 27 discrete variables concerning topology, configuration and sizing of the(More)
