Title Engineering introduction to the shape optimization of the roof

The presentation covers some of engineering problems which require shape optimization, mostly concerning civil engineering and architectural structures. There is the introduction in the classification of parameters and requirements for optimization from engineering point of view, and the examples of practical tasks of the choice of rational forms of shells with results and discussion. The special attention is paid to the engineering preconditions for the shape optimization of the roof, as well as the theoretical part of optimization which was developed in collaboration with Anna Rozanova-Pierrat and Frederic Magoules from MICS laboratory.
