Topology optimisation has for a considerable time been applied successfully in the automotive industry, but still has not become a mainstream technology for the design of aircraft components. The explanation for this is partly to be sought in the larger problem sizes and in the often quite complicated support and loading conditions for aircraft components. Also, aircraft components are often stability designs and the compliance based topology optimisation method still lacks the ability to deal… CONTINUE READING
