Abstract

A graphical approach to the of structural elements that integrates the selection of material and geometric form is discussed. The concept is introduced with an example chan for optimizing a strong light beam. This is followed by a detailed derivation of the composite chart which mols the more complex problem of compression struts. Examples of the procedures associated with this chart are given, and the advantages of implementing thk design aid in the form of computer sojiware are highlighted.
