Abstract: The paper considers the minimization of the maximum deflection of a simply supported beam under a transverse uniformly distributed load. The longitudinal elongation of the member is not to exceed a given value if it is to act as a tie. The tie-beam is to be of given volume (mass). The problem is formulated as a numerical optimization problem and is solved using a direct search optimization method.
