Optimal design of a class of symmetric plane frameworks of least weight

Tomasz Sokół , T. Lewiński


The aim of the paper is to place the recent results on the Michell-like problem of transmitting two vertical forces to two fixed hinge supports in the context of C. Maxwell’s result and to provide answers to the remarks by Vázquez Espií and Cervera Bravo (Struct Multidisc Optim, 2011) published in their Discussion Paper: On the solution of the three forces problem and its application in optimal designing of a class of symmetric plane frameworks of least weight. Discussion on the Michell class concept.
