"This book presents a computational method for the preliminary shape design of lightweight structures. The strategy relies on fundamental concepts of structural design to formulate an optimization problem combining the theories of mathematical programming and structural mechanics. The method considers many design settings including stress and displacement constraints, self-weight, multiple loading conditions and structural stability considerations. In addition, the conceptual framework is well suited to accommodate project-specific constraints."--Preface.
