  • We present a novel method for optimizing structures by adaptively refining the structural details. The adaptively refined structures topologically resemble the graph composed of edges in the quadtree mesh. However, while adaptive mesh refinement is employed in numerical analysis for reducing computational complexity, in this work we interpret the edges as structural elements carrying mechanical loads. The adaptivity and full coverage over the design domain make adaptively refined structures… CONTINUE READING
