Canonical Duality Theory for Topology Optimization

Abstract

This paper presents a novel canonical duality approach for solving a general topology optimization problem of nonlinear elastic structures. We first show that by using finite element method, this most challenging problem can be formulated as a bi-level mixed integer nonlinear programming problem, i.e. for a given deformation, the upper-level optimization is… (More)
