ABSTRACT

Two heuristic methods of structure topology optimization are presented. They are based on the application of the fully-stressed design criterion, used in practice to determine the structural rational parameters taking into account the strength constraints. Peculiarities of the developed algorithms are considered, and a comparative analysis of the optimization results with the known solutions by other algorithms is fulfilled.
