  1. 1. Approximation of topology optimization problems using sizing optimization problems

    Författare :Anton Evgrafov; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :structural optimization; bilevel programming; approximation; topology optimization; control in coefficients; optimal design; fictitious domain; control in coefficients;

    Sammanfattning : The present work is devoted to approximation techniques for singular extremal problems arising from optimal design problems in structural and fluid mechanics. The thesis consists of an introductory part and four independent papers, which however are united by the common idea of approximation and the related application areas. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Topology optimization of vehicle structures

    Författare :Torbjörn Johansen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :topology optimization; frame structure; vehicle structure; flexible joint; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns topology optimization of vehicle structures. Vehicle structures are considered to be composed of beams joined together and the work has been focused on a method for beam topology optimization including joints. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On optimization of natural convection flows

    Författare :Clio Saglietti; Dan S. Henningson; Kurt Maute; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Natural convection cooling; topology optimization; flow optimization; heat sink; conjugate heat transfer; differentially heated cavity; optimal initial disturbances; adjoint optimization;

    Sammanfattning : Two different techniques are presented for enhancing the thermal  performance of natural convection cooled heat sinks. The physics is  described by solving the conjugate heat transfer problem with a  spectral element method. The temperature distribution is computed in  two sub-domains, whose solution is then conjugated. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Topology optimization of antennas and waveguide transitions

    Författare :Emadeldeen Hassan; Martin Berggren; Daniel Noreland; Eddie Wadbro; Mats Gustafsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Maxwell s equations; topology optimization; antennas; waveguide transition; finite-difference time-domain; gradient-based optimization; adjoint-field problem; microwave devices.; business data processing; administrativ databehandling;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis introduces a topology optimization approach to design, from scratch, efficient microwave devices, such as antennas and waveguide transitions. The design of these devices is formulated as a general optimization problem that aims to build the whole layout of the device in order to extremize a chosen objective function. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Topology Optimization of Fatigue-Constrained Structures

    Författare :Henrik Svärd; Krister Svanberg; Pierre Duysinx; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; topology optimization; fatigue constraints; stress constraints; density filters; restriction methods; weakest link theory; critical plane criteria; Mathematics; Matematik;

    Sammanfattning : Fatigue, or failure of material due to repeated cyclic loading, is one of the most common causes of mechanical failures. The risk of fatigue in a load carrying component is often lowered by adding material, thereby reducing stresses. LÄS MER
