Topology optimization

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


Taking as a starting point a design case for a compliant mechanism (a force inverter), the fundamental elements of topology optimization are described. The basis for the developments is a FEM format for this design problem and emphasis is given to the parameterization of design as a raster image and the techniques associated with solving this class of problems by computational means.
