ABSTRACT Shells are known to be optimal in many ways, provided certain basic shell oriented design rules are followed. The shape, thickness and material distribution play a dominant role. Minimum material, a specific frequency response, maximum load carrying capacity, a pure membrane stress state are typical design objectives. In the present contribution the form finding and thickness variation are embedded in the concept of structural optimization which combines design modelling, structural… CONTINUE READING
