Review paper on feature mapping methods

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.

Upcoming TOP Webinar

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!
