In this example of a mast are nodes , , measured in meter and potential bars between every two not fixed nodes with a maximal distance of — long bars which are located alongside several shorter bars are ignored. The supports are in the nodes , which are fixed in every direction. In the node acts a force of in the negative -direction.

`The main problem is implemented as a script`. The other scripts are linked by the pictures.

For a perturbation of in every direction of the force, and scaling to obtain the same maximal quantities as in the unperturbed case, our robust optimization method produces the robust optimal solution.
