Optimum Design of Some Steel Roof Strucutres

The optimum design of a range of steel roof structures is established using a combination of non-linear programming methods. The objective function is cost orientated and a suitable cost model is described. The relative costs of seven types of roof structure are compared and conclusions drawn as to cost effectiveness. A.B.
