The journal’s scope ranges from mathematical foundations of the field to algorithm and software development, and from benchmark examples to case studies of practical applications in structural, aero-space, mechanical, civil, chemical, naval and bio-engineering.

Fields such as computer-aided design and manufacturing, uncertainty quantification, artificial intelligence, system identification and modeling, inverse processes, computer simulation, bio-mechanics, bio-medical applications, nano-technology, MEMS, optics, chemical processes, computational biology, meta-modeling, DOE and active control of structures are covered when the topic is closely related to the optimization of structures or fluids.

Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization publishes original research papers, review articles, industrial applications, brief notes, educational articles, book reviews, conference diary, forum section, discussions on papers, authors´ replies, obituaries, announcements and society news.

The journal does not consider papers directly related to weapon and military applications.

  • Official Journal of the International Society of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization
  • Explores a wide range of topics dealing with designing optimal structures
