P Slysh: 1625. Methodology for Optimization of Shell Structures. 1984.



This paper outlines the major analysis modules that could be used to optimally size shell of revolution structures. Specifications for the modules are provided. Both empirical and finite-element methods are considered. For selected optimization strategies, the modules are organized into flow diagrams indicating 110 functions and human intervention requirements. Examples of typical analysis results are presented.
