Original Abstract

This contribution describes a formulation of the optimized design of structures using the probability based method. The Monte Carlo simulation method, modified by the Latin Hypercube Sampling (LHS) method, was used for the calculation of the reliability of a designed structure. To find the best possible design for a structure an optimization procedure (method) was used. Economical and ecological aspects (acquisition costs, CO2 and SO2 emissions, photochemical ozone creation potential and embodied energy) associated with concrete member production, with utilization stage of and end of life cycle stage were taken into account in the objective function.
