%X A bi-criteria optimization is considered whose objectives are the maximization of the load sustained by a structure and the minimization of the structure's volume. As the objectives are conflicting, the solution to the problem is of the Pareto type. The problem is elaborated for a thin-walled column of cruciform cross-section, prone to flexural and torsional buckling. A numerical example is also presented.
