Properties of Pareto optimal solutions considering bounded uncertainty are first investigated using an illustrative example of a simple truss. It is shown that the nominal values of the Pareto optimal solutions considering uncertainty are slightly different from those without considering uncertainty. Next a hybrid approach of multiobjective optimization and antioptimization is presented for force design of tensegrity structures. We maximize the lowest eigenvalue of the tangent stiffness matrix and minimize the deviation of forces from the specified target distribution. These objective functions are defined as the worst values due to the possible errors in the fabrication and construction processes. The Pareto optimal solutions are found by solving the two-level optimization–antioptimization problems using a nonlinear programming approach for the upper optimization problem and enumeration of the vertices of the uncertain region for the lower antioptimization problem.
