Abstract

After pioneering research in the late eighties, topology optimization gained major interest from the structural optimization community. In
topology optimization, the layout of a structure is automatically created by an algorithm which tries to optimize a response, e.g. compliance or deformation, while satisfying certain constraints, e.g. eigen frequencies, mass etc. In fact, topology optimization seeks an optimal placement of material, leading, besides the
layout of a structure, to shape and dimensions as well. Early industrial adopters can be found in automotive and aerospace industry.
