By Martin Philip Bendsoe, Ole Sigmund

The topology optimization strategy solves the elemental enginee- ring challenge of allotting a constrained quantity of fabric in a layout area. the 1st version of this e-book has turn into the normal textual content on optimum layout that's fascinated by the optimization of structural topology, form and fabric. This version, has been considerably revised and up to date to mirror growth made in modelling and computational techniques. It additionally features a finished and unified description of the state of the art of the so-called fabric distribution approach, in line with using mathematical programming and finite components. functions handled comprise not just buildings but additionally fabrics and MEMS.

Example text

Tence of solutions and also convergence of the FE approximations have been proved, providing a solid foundation [8]. We close this brief discussion by noting that the alternative to a restriction of the design space is to extend the space by allowing composites as admissible designs (see Chap. 3). For minirniun compliance this lives up to our requirement of independence of mesh refinement, but also gives designs with large areas of "grey" This is thus not an option if 0-1 designs are the goal 10 Perimeter control The perimeter of a mechanical element 11'nar is, vaguely speaking, the sum of the lengths/areas of all inner and outer boundaries.

For the minimum compliance problem of an infinite medium, this means that for a Q4 discretization of displacements and any discrete as well as the continuum description of p, the corresponding optimization problem has the checkerboard version (matched to the Q4 mesh) as an optimal design. Thus it is not surprising that one in general sees that optimization generates these non-physical checkerboards when Q4-displacement elements are used. Checkerboards and choice of FE spaces The problem of finding the op- timal topology by the material distribution method is a two field problem.

Even in this finite lay-out the non-physical checkerboard - modelled by Q4 elements - is almost as stiff as the sheet. application of the Babuska-Brezzi condition to the present situation. However, these problems aside, taking a direct analogy to the similar problem in Stokes flow indicates nonetheless that certain combinations of finite element discretizations will be unstable and some stable.
