Stress constrained G closure and relaxation of structural design problems
A generic relaxation for stress constrained optimal design problems is presented. It is accomplished by introducing the stress constrained G closure. For a finite number of stress constraints, an explicit characterization of the stress constrained G closure is given. It is shown that the stress constrained G closure is characterized by all G limits together with their derivatives. A local representation of the set of all G limits and their derivatives is developed. © 2004 Brown University.
