Optymalne kształtowanie pręta metodą programowania dynamicznego

Jan Błachut
In this paper, the minimum-volume design of a flexible bar with large deflections is shown. The minimum-volume problem is formulated as an example of the control theory and solved by using the ideas of dynamic programming in its discrete version. To illustrate the method of solution, details of numerical calculations are presented.
