Design and optimization are two backbones of engineering, and the maturity reached by both technologies allows engineers to approach even more complex problems.

This idea is reflected on every page of this book that contains the most of the works presented at the OPTI 99, the 6th international conference on Computer Aided Optimum Design of Structure held in March, 1999 in Orlando, Florida (USA). Subjects such as optimization of forms, optimal control of structures, multi-objective optimization are some of the topics included here. Some research works using new numerical optimization methods are mentioned as well as the advances in parallel computation applied to optimum design. The practical applications offer results in vast and various engineering fields.
