Abstract

Shape Optimal Design is a branch of structural design optimization where the shape of the structure is determined using quantities that influence the shape of the object as design variables. A crucial point in this process is the strategy to choose these quantities. These strategies can be classified into two approaches - the Geometric Approach and the Natural Approach [Rajan and Gani, 1990]. The Hybrid Natural Approach is presented as an alternative where some aspects of the natural approach are combined with the geometric approach to overcome the drawbacks of both the approaches.
