This book contains the edited version of lectures and contributed papers presented at the NA TO ADV ANCED RESEARCH WORKSHOP ON TOPOLOGY OPTIMIZATION OF STRUCTURES, held at Hotel do Mar, Sesimbra, Portugal, 20 June to 26 June, 1992, and organised by the Mathematical Institutc, The Technical University of Denmark and bv CEMUL-Center of Mechanics and Materials of the Techmcal University of Lisbon, Fifty participants from' fourteen countries attended the workshop, This book is organiLed in ten parts, each one addressing a sub field of topology optimiIalion, its relations to materials modelling and its implementation: Part 1- Topology design of discrete structures. Part II - Discrete design and sclection problems. Part III - The homogenization method for topology design. Part IV - AlternatiYC methods for topology design of continuum structures. Part V - Boundary shape design meth(xis. Part VI Rela\.ation and optimal shape design. Part VII - EtTectiw media theory and optimal design. Part VIII - Extending the scope of topology design. Part IX Topology design in a computer-aided design environment .. Parl X- Aspects of topology design.
