Structural Design using Cellular Automata
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2001), TR-01-02
Traditional parallel methods for structural design do not scale well. This paper discusses the application of massively scalable cellular automata (CA) techniques to structural design. There are two sets of CA rules, one ...
A comparison of three Algorithms for Tracing Nonlinear Equilibrium Paths of Structural Systems
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2001), TR-01-05
The relative efficiencies of the Riks/Wempner, Crisﬁeld, and normal flow solution algorithms for tracking nonlinear equilibrium paths of structural systems are compared. It is argued that the normal flow algorithm maybe ...
