The intent of this study is to develop an algorithm for structural design based on allowable displacements for structural members, independent of stresses caused by the configurations imposed. Structural design can be based on displacement constraints applied in the same basic format as stress constraints so that convergence is based on allowable displacements rather than on stresses.
