Abstract

In this work we present an unconventional procedure for combining the optimal shape design and nonlinear analysis in mechanics. The main goal of the presented procedure is to enhance computational efficiency for nonlinear problems with respect to the conventional, sequential approach by solving the analysis and design phases simultaneously. A detailed development is presented for the chosen model problem, the 3d rod undergoing large rotations.
