Abstract: "This paper presents a technique for the generation and optimization of truss structure topologies based on the shape annealing algorithm. Feasible topologies for the truss are generated through a shape grammar, in an optimally directed manner, using simulated annealing. The algorithm can incorporate stress and buckling constraints as well as assembly and manufacturing constraints, during design topology generation."
