%T Rational Structure of Panel with Curved Plywood Ribs
%V 51
%X Optimization of rational geometrical and mechanical
parameters of panel with curved plywood ribs is considered in this
paper. The panel consists of cylindrical plywood ribs manufactured
from Finish plywood, upper and bottom plywood flange, stiffness
diaphragms. Panel is filled with foam. Minimal ratio of structure self
weight and load that could be applied to structure is considered as
rationality criteria. Optimization is done, by using classical beam
theory without nonlinearities. Optimization of discreet design
variables is done by Genetic algorithm.
