Abstract [en]

The present theoretical note shows how a natural objective function in stiffness optimization, including both prescribed forces and non-zero prescribed displacements, is the equilibrium potential energy. It also shows how the resulting problem has a saddle point character that may be utilized when calculating sensitivities.
