 algorithm to place N rectilinear blocks in a ring to minimize total area rbuchana14-Aug-20 5:21 rbuchana 14-Aug-20 5:21
 Imagine having ‘N’ rectilinear blocks of varying sizes. 'N' can be any number (< 1000); and of different but similar sizes. See here... blocks — ImgBB[^] I need an algorithm that will place these in a “ring” fashion, such that the area is minimized. White spaces or blank spaces within the ring are fine. Ring picture... ring — ImgBB[^] The constraints are… Each rectilinear block must be placed Minimize the area (x*y) Create a ring such as below Ring implementation Note that my two pictures don't align exactly, meaning not all the blocks in the first picture are placed in the second. These pictures are only provided as reference/examples. I’m not a computer scientist by trade. This would seem to be a cost optimization problem, by I’m having a problem wading through the many optimization algorithms out there. Any guidance on which algorithm would be viable? Thanks!
