Check out our webinar on topology optimization with discrete geometric components made of composite materials, presented by Structural Optimization Lab PhD candidate Hollis Smith (the presentation starts at minute 21). This webinar was part of the TOP Webinar organized by Delft University and the Technical University of Denmark.
Check out our webinar on topology optimization of multi-material lattices using geometry projection, based on the research work of Structural Optimization Lab alumna Hesaneh Kazemi (the presentation starts at minute 25). This webinar was part of the TOP Webinar organized by Delft University and the Technical University of Denmark.
A review paper on feature mapping methods for structural optimization written in collaboration with Dr. Fabian Wein (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität ) and Dr. Peter Dunning (University of Aberdeen) has been published online in Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization. In this review we identify a new category of methods for implementing and solving structural optimization problems that has emerged over the last 20 years, which we propose to call feature-mapping methods. The two defining aspects of these methods are that the design is parameterized by a high-level geometric description and that features are mapped onto a nonbody-fitted mesh for analysis. You can see our paper here.
Join us on June 1st, 2020 for the first TOP Webinar organized by Delft University of Technology and sponsored by the International Society of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ISSMO). This venue was created to share the latest research developments in the topology optimization community.
We are honored to have been invited to talk about our work on multi-material topology optimization of lattice structures in the first edition of the TOP webinar–join us if you can!
Check out our educational paper on a MATLAB code for topology optimization using geometry projection, which was just published in Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization.
The corresponding code can be downloaded from GitHub at https://github.com/jnorato/GPTO.
We will add the paper and a link to the code in the Software section of our website.
Our paper on “Adaptive Mesh Refinement for Topology Optimization with Discrete Geometric Components” has been accepted in Computer Methods for Applied Mechanics and Engineering and is now available on-line. You can download a freely available copy of the pre-print here (this copy will be available until April 25, 2020).
