Introduction Dynamic rspons analysis of structurs subjctd to transint loads oftn rquirs much mor dmanding computational cost than static analysis. Thrfor th fficincy of th optimization mthod bcoms critical to dynamic rspons optimization problms. Mathmatically, thr ar thr typs of dynamic rspons optimization mthods: zro ordr mthods (nongradintbasd algorithms), first ordr mthods (gradintbasd algorithms) and scond ordr mthods (gradinthssian matrixbasd algorithms). Gnrally, th first ordr mthods ar mor fficint than th zro ordr mthods, and th scond ordr mthods ar mor fficint than th first ordr mthods. Zro ordr mthods rquir only th information of dynamic rsponss to construct optimal algorithms. A lot of nongradintbasd algorithms 4] hav bn dvlopd to solv th optimization problm of structurs subjctd to transint loads. First ordr mthods rquir th information of dynamic rsponss and thir first drivativs with rspct to dsign variabls to construct optimal algorithms.

2 446 Q. Liu t al. / Optimization dsign of structurs subjctd to transint loads using first and scond drivativs first drivativs of structural dynamic rsponss for gradintbasd algorithms. Howvr, many algorithms hav bn dvlopd to calculat dynamic rspons first drivativs with rspct to dsign variabls (also calld snsitivity analysis 5 2]). Today, th gradintbasd algorithms ar th mainstram pattrn 3] to solv th optimization problm of structurs subjctd to transint loads. Much rsarch 4 7] has bn don to solv th structural dynamic rspons optimization problm with th gradintbasd algorithms. Scond ordr mthods rquir th information of dynamic rsponss, thir first and scond drivativs with rspct to dsign variabls to construct optimal algorithms. Th Nwton s mthod and Quasi Nwton s mthod ar th commonly usd scond ordr mthod. Although many rsarchrs hav calculatd dynamic rspons first drivativs with rspct to dsign variabls, thr is littl litratur publishd on dynamic rspons scond drivativ analysis (also calld Hssian matrix analysis). Scond drivativ analysis is mor complicatd than first drivativanalysis. Howvr, th fficincy of th optimization using scond drivativ can b gratly improvd whn th gradint and Hssian matrix can b calculatd fficintly. In this papr, a gradinthssian matrixbasd algorithm for optimization problm of structurs subjctd to transint loads is dvlopd basd on gradint and Hssian matrix calculations. Th purpos of this papr is to dvlop a gradinthssian matrixbasd optimization mthod for structurs subjctd to dynamic loads. Th main work of this papr is as follows: First, w formulat an algorithm to calculat dynamic rsponssand thir first and scond drivativs with rspct to dsign variabls. Th algorithm is achivd by dirct diffrntiation and only a singl dynamics analysis, basd on Nwmarkβ mthod 8], is rquird. Scond, w formulat th timdpndnt structural optimization modl. In this modl, total mass of th structur is th objctiv function. Th dynamic rsponss including strsss of th bam lmnt and nodal displacmnts ar constraints. Third, th timdpndnt optimization modl is convrtd into a squnc of appropriatly formd unconstraind intgral mathmatic modls using th intrior pnalty function mthod. Th gradint and Hssian matrixs of th intrior pnalty functions ar also calculatd using th first and scond drivativs of dynamic rsponss. Fourth, Marquardt s mthod 9], a gradinthssian matrixbasd algorithm, is mployd to solv th unconstraind intgral mathmatic modl. Finally, as th illustration of th dvlopd approach, optimization dsigns of a plan fram subjctd to th horizontal dynamic loads ar dmonstratd. 2. Calculation of first and scond drivativs This sction prsnts two subjcts. Sction 2. introducs th calculations of first and scond drivativs of dynamic rsponss (i.., nodal displacmnt and normal strss) with rspct to dsign variabls of structurs. Sction 2.2 discusss how to calculat first and scond drivativs of structural mass with rspct to structural dsign variabls. 2.. Calculation of first and scond drivativs of dynamic displacmnt and strss Th first and scond drivativs of dynamic rspons of structurs ar th prrquisits of an fficint gradint Hssian matrixbasd algorithm. W will show hr that, in a singl structural dynamic analysis, th first and scond drivativs of a dynamic rspons can b drivd simultanously. Plan bam lmnt is usd xtnsivly in nginring. Thrfor, th dynamic optimal dsign mthod is dmonstratd with th plan bam lmnt in this work. Th lmnt crosssction shown in Fig. is H structuralstl shap. Th dsign variabls of lmnt ar d, d 2, d 3 and d 4.

Transformation of mathmatical modl Th ky fatur of th transformation mthod is to transform a constraind problm into an unconstraind problm. Thus, w minimiz only on function in th transformation mthod. This is an attractiv aspct in that many timdpndnt constraints and an objctiv function can b mrgd into a singl function. Th rprsntativs of th transformation mthod ar th augmntd Lagrang multiplir mthod 6] and th xtrior pnalty function mthod 20] in structur optimal dsign undr dynamic loads. Howvr, th augmntd Lagrang multiplir function and th xtrior pnalty function ar discontinuous functions, thrfor, th gradint and Hssian matrix calculations of ths functions ar difficult whn th dirct diffrntiation mthod is mployd to obtain th first and scond drivativs. Compard to th augmntd Lagrang multiplir function and th xtrior pnalty function, th intrior pnalty function is a continuous function, so th gradint and Hssian matrix calculations of th intrior pnalty function ar rlativly asy whn th dirct diffrntiation mthod is usd to obtain th first and scond drivativs. Th intrior pnalty function mthod rquirs a fasibl initial dsign point. Typically, it may b difficult to obtain a fasibl initial dsign in a complx problm. Howvr, in structural optimization problms, a fasibl dsign point can b found in th structurs with th larg crosssctional aras. Thrfor, in this papr th intrior pnalty function is mployd to transform th inquality constraint optimization problm.
13 Q. Liu t al. / Optimization dsign of structurs subjctd to transint loads using first and scond drivativs Intrior pnalty function mthod In this papr th inquality constraint optimal mathmatic modl Eq. (57) is convrtd to a squnc of appropriatly formd unconstraind intgral mathmatic modl using th intrior pnalty function mthod. Th intrior pnalty function mthod is adoptd as follows. 2N f +8N Γ P (d,r k )=w (d) r k 8N g J (d,t) dt + (58) g I (d) J= 0 In Eq. (58), pnalty paramtr r k is a squnc of numbrs which ar dgrssiv. Whn r k 0, th minimum of pnalty function P (d,r k ) approachs th minimum of th constraint problm. So th solution of th inquality constraint optimization modl, Eq. (57), is transformd into a squnc of unconstraint problms: Find d 2N f +8N Γ min P (d,r k )=w (d) r k 8N g J (d,t) dt + (59) g I (d) J= 0 Initial pnalty paramtr r can b calculatd by th following quation, 2N f +8N Γ r 8N g J (d 0,t) dt + = p 0 g I (d 0 ) 00 w (d 0) (60) J= 0 I= whr d 0 is th initial dsign point and p 0 = 50. In this work, w choos p 0 = 50. Th pnalty paramtr r k dcrass according to th following rul: r k+ = r k (6) c whr c =0 50 and c = 0 in this work. k is th numbr of pnalty paramtr which will b usd in th procss of sarch Calculation of gradint and Hssian matrix of intrior pnalty function Now w calculat th first and scond drivativs of th pnalty function with rspct to th structural dsign variabls. Th tim stp and duration of dynamic loads ar Δt and Γ, rspctivly. Lt a = Γ Δt. Th first drivativs of pnalty function can b obtaind by diffrntiating Eq.

(57), is convrtd into a squnc of th appropriatly formd unconstraind intgral modl, Eq. (59). Marquardt s mthod, a gradinthssian matrixbasd algorithm, is adoptd to solv th unconstraind problm, taking advantags that th gradint and Hssian matrixs ar fully usd in this optimal mthod. Marquardt s mthod combins Cauchy s and Nwton s mthods in a convnint mannr that xploits th strngths of both but dos rquir scondordr information. Th major mrit of Marquardt s mthod is its simplicity, dscnt proprty, xcllnt convrgnc rat nar th optimum, and absnc of a lin sarch.
