please help me. im having problem with the matlab coding to do an optimum design of mechanical structures (example, beams, shaft etc)..
example: let say i want to design a beam that when load is applied,it will not produce stress that exceed the yield stress and thus fail.
beam is made of steel with yield strength of 448Mpa.
how to do the optimization that will calculate for me the minimum area of the cross section of the beam?
please help me..this is just one simple example and yet i cant do it. by now, i should be doing some more of complicated shape component
