Abstract
The report describes the implementation, on the RMC Honeywell Computer, of the constrained structural optimization programming systems PROSSS, PROSSS-2, and PVC04. PROSSS and PROSSS-2 were developed at the NASA Langley Research Center by combining in a modular manner a production level structural analysis program (SPAR), a state-of-the-art optimization program (CONMIN) and user supplied and problem dependent interface programs. PVC04 was developed at RMC by replacing, in PROSSS-2, the NASA sponsored structural analysis program SPAR by the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic (DREA) sponsored analysis program VASTO4. PROSSS-2 has three optimization flow options. To date only one of these has been implemented in PVCO4. During the implementation of the three programming systems, code for many component parts was converted from CDC and VAX systems to run on the RMC Honeywell system.
