Design of Material and Structure for Optimal Damage

    Project Details

    Description

    The work is based on a micro mechanical model, allowing for a combination of topology design using a material distribution method with micro mechanical models for damage to structures. An important element is to achieve a well posed formulation, which is also reasonable to handle numerically. Furthermore, dual formulations of damage models are considered, with the aim to achieve formulations suitable for optimization.
    Keywords: Optimal topology, optimal material, damage models.
