FRIEDLANDER, Ana and GOMES, Francisco A. M.. Solution of a truss topology bilevel programming problem by means of an inexact restoration method. Comput. Appl. Math. [online]. 2011, vol.30, n.1, pp.109-125. ISSN 1807-0302. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1807-03022011000100006.
We formulate a truss topology optimization problem as a bilevel programming problem and solve it by means of a line search type inexact restoration algorithm. We discuss details of the implementation and show results of numerical experiments.
Keywords : inexact restoration; bilevel programming; truss topology optimization.
