ProblemTruss is a multi-objective optimization problem. It implements a simple construction problem with the goal to optimize a truss structure. The module constains a small Finite Element Analysis code for analysing a truss structure.
The truss consists of 10 rods which connect the 6 point (labelled from 0 to 5). At point 0 and 2, a force F=45'000N is applied, which deforms the truss and generates stresses in the 10 rods.
The input of this module are the individual cross-sections of the rods (i.e. 10 cross-sections).
The output of this modules are 3 values, which can be set either as objectives or constraints:
- the weight of the 10 rods of the truss
- the maximum stress in a rod
- the maximum deflection of a node of the truss.
