Dear Colleague

Please find details of a 3-day course on Optimum Structural Design: Fundamentals, 
software and applications by visiting our website at: 


In all engineering problems, designers try to find solutions showing good 
performance, which satisfy several requirements. Using optimization techniques, 
engineers can obtain the optimum, within the imposed conditions.  Structures 
designed in this way are safer, more reliable and less expensive than the traditional 
designs.  This course contains a comprehensive survey of the more efficient methods 
of numerical optimization, including more recent advances. 

The course, presented by Prof Santiago Hernandez from the University of La Coruna, 
Spain and organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology, Southampton, UK, will 
take place from 9-11 June 2004 at Ashurst Lodge, Ashurst, Southampton, UK with a 
limited number of places available.
