Original Abstract

This contribution describes a formulation of the optimized design of structures using the probability-based optimization 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. The economical and ecological aspects (acquisition costs, CO2 and SO2 emissions and embodied energy associated with concrete member production) were taken into account in the objective function. A design example - a prestressed spun concrete pole made from reinforced concrete or alternatively from reinforced fibre concrete is presented.
