Re: definition of structural effinciency

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
stefan,
i would really be surprised if a "formal" definition could be given.
in my logic however if a structure satisfies the criteria of (in the order
of importance)
i) function
ii)safety
iii)economy and
iv)clarity-elegance
then this structure can be classified as efficient
regards
john sigalas
