  • Uncertainty and Optimization in Structural Mechanicsby Abdelkhalak El Hami; Radi Bouchaib

    Wiley 2013; US$ 82.95

    Optimization is generally a reduction operation of a definite quantity. This process naturally takes place in our environment and through our activities. For example, many natural systems evolve, in order to minimize their potential energy. Modeling these phenomena then largely relies on our capacity to artificially reproduce these processes. In parallel,... more...
