Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Discontinuity layout optimization is an engineering analysis procedure which can be used to directly establish the amount of load that can be carried by a solid or structure prior to collapse. Using DLO the layout of failure planes, or 'discontinuities', in a collapsing solid or structure are identified using mathematical optimization methods. It is assumed that failure occurs in a ductile or 'plastic' manner. DLO can be formulated in terms of equilibrium relations or in terms of displacements. In the latter case the objective of the mathematical optimization problem is to minimize the internal energy dissipated along discontinuities, subject to nodal compatibility constraints.show more
