Abstract

We consider topology optimization of mass distribution problems in 2D and 3D Stokes flow with the aim of designing devices that meet target outflow rates. For the purpose of validation, the designs have been post processed using the image processing tools available in FEMLAB. In turn, this has enabled an evaluation of the design with a body fitted mesh in a standard analysis software relevant in engineering practice prior to design manufacturing. This work investigates the proper choice of a maximum penalization value during the optimization process that ensures that the target outflow rates are met in the validation test.
