Abstract: This study is devoted to the optimal design of compressed bars under axial tensile or compressive forces and exposed to a corrosive environment. Dolinskii's linear stress corrosion model is adopted for analysis. Analytical and numerical results are derived for optimal variation of the cross-sectional area of the bar along its axis.
