Call for Papers on Engineering Optimization



Engineering Optimization is a multidisciplinary research area applied in such fields as: structural, mechanical, electrical, civil and bio-engineering. In particular, since its beginning in the nineteenth century and pioneering works by Maxwell and Michell, significant progress in structural optimization has been made. Initially in the field of structural optimization researchers worked on size and shape optimization problems. Currently, their efforts are oriented towards topology optimization under deterministic or probabilistic forces with multiple load conditions and the designs based on linearly elastic or elastoplastic materials.

The purpose of this theme issue is to present recent advances in the field of engineering optimization. The editors of the Special Issue welcome contributions dealing with both theoretical and computational aspects of engineering optimization. Topics of interest include, though are not limited to:

* size, shape and topology optimization,

* design optimization and inverse problems,

* design under uncertainty,

* robust and reliability-based design optimization,

* optimization of composite structures,

* numerical optimization techniques.
