The journal’s scope ranges from mathematical foundations of the field to algorithm and software development, and from benchmark examples to case studies of practical applications in structural, aero-space, mechanical, civil, chemical, naval and bio-engineering.
Fields such as computer-aided design and manufacturing, reliability analysis, artificial intelligence, system identification and modeling, inverse processes, computer simulation, bio-mechanics, bio-medical applications, nano-technology, MEMS, optics, chemical processes, computational biology, meta-modeling, DOE and active control of structures are covered when the topic is closely related to the optimization of structures or fluids.
· explores a wide range of topics dealing with optimization in solid (structural) and fluid mechanics (including CFD)
· covers multidisciplinary optimization when one discipline deals with structures or fluids
· examines closely related fields that are relevant to structural or fluid optimization
· is the official journal of the International Society of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ISSMO)
