Design-dependent Loads in Topology Optimization

  title={Design-dependent Loads in Topology Optimization},
  author={Blaise Bourdin and Antonin Chambolle}
We present, analyze, and implement a new method for the design of the stiffest structure subject to a pressure load or a given field of internal forces. Our structure is represented as a subset S of a reference domain, and the complement of S is made of two other “phases”, the “void” and a fictitious “liquid” that exerts a pressure force on its interface with the solid structure. The problem we consider is to minimize the compliance of the structure S, which is the total work of the pressure… CONTINUE READING
