Buckling optimization of compressed bars undergoing corrosion
Mark M. Fridman and Isaac Elishakoff

    This study is devoted to the optimal design of compressed bars under axial compressive forces and exposed to a corrosive environment. The initial volume of the structure is taken as an optimality parameter. Gutman – Zainullin\'s exponential stress corrosion model is adopted for analysis. Analytical and numerical results are derived for optimal variation of the cross-sectional area of the bar along its axis.
