Phononic crystals can be designed to show band gaps—ranges of frequencies whose propagation is strongly attenuated in the material. In essence, their working principle is based on destructive interference of waves reflecting from the periodic arrangement of material interfaces (i.e., Bragg scattering). Consequently, capturing accurately the...

The design of high-performance mechatronic systems is very challenging, as it requires delicate balancing of system dynamics, the controller, and their closed-loop interaction. Topology optimization provides an automated way to obtain systems with superior performance, although extension to simultaneous optimization of both topology and...

Computational process modelling of metal additive manufacturing has gained significant research attention in recent past. The cornerstone of many process models is the transient thermal response during the AM process. Since deposition-scale modelling of the thermal conditions in AM is computationally expensive, spatial and temporal...

The published article contains a mistake in the notation of the strain–displacement matrix (Formula presented.) in Voigt notation concerning the isoparametric mapping and in the notation of the corresponding derivatives. As the mistakes relate only to the notation, and the implementation in the code was done correctly, they bear no...

High computational costs are encountered in topology optimization problems of geometrically nonlinear structures since intensive use has to be made of incremental-iterative finite element simulations. To alleviate this computational intensity, reduced-order models (ROMs) are explored in this paper. The proposed method targets ROM bases...

In recent years, the Q-factor of Si 3 N 4 nanomechanical resonators has significantly been increased by soft-clamping techniques using large and complex support structures. To date, however, obtaining similar performance with smaller supports has remained a challenge. Here, we make use of torsion beam supports to tune the Q-factor of Si 3 N 4...

Additive manufacturing of metal parts involves phase transformations and high temperature gradients which lead to uneven thermal expansion and contraction, and, consequently, distortion of the fabricated components. The distortion has a great influence on the structural performance and dimensional accuracy, e.g., for assembly. It is therefore...

Overheating is a major issue especially in metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes, leading to poor surface quality, lack of dimensional precision, inferior performance and/or build failures. A 3D density-based topology optimization (TO) method is presented which addresses the issue of local overheating during metal AM. This is achieved...

Modeling of fluid flows in density-based topology optimization forms a longstanding challenge. Methods based on the Navier–Stokes equations with Darcy penalization (NSDP equations) are widely used in fluid topology optimization. These methods use porous materials with low permeability to represent the solid domain. Consequently, they suffer...

A novel constraint to prevent local overheating is presented for use in topology optimization (TO). The very basis for the constraint is the Additive Manufacturing (AM) process physics. AM enables fabrication of highly complex topologically optimized designs. However, local overheating is a major concern especially in metal AM processes...

In this paper, a novel alternative method of stiffness compensation in buckled mechanisms is investigated. This method involves the use of critical load matching, i.e., matching the first two buckling loads of a mechanism. An analytical simply supported five-bar linkage model consisting of three rigid links, a prismatic slider joint, and four...

Metastructures composed of snapping beams are capable of deforming into a series of stable states, enabling them to realize shape reconfigurations. In this paper, we present the design of a metastructure-based morphing surface that is able to exhibit a series of stable configurations with different curvatures. Using theoretical, numerical,...

We propose a fully immersed topology optimization procedure to design structures with tailored fracture resistance under linear elastic fracture mechanics assumptions for brittle materials. We use a level set function discretized by radial basis functions to represent the topology and the Interface-enriched Generalized Finite Element Method ...

A remarkable elastic anisotropy in plates of austenitic stainless steel produced by the Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing process is recently reported. The Young's modulus depends on the angle of orientation with respect to the material deposition direction. Here, for the first time, this anisotropy is exploited to maximize structural...

High-tech equipment critically relies on flexures for precise manipulation and measurement. Through elastic deformation, flexures offer extreme position repeatability within a limited range of motion in their degrees of freedom, while constraining motion in the degrees of constraint. Topology optimization proves a prospective tool for the...

In topology optimization, the state of structures is typically obtained by numerically evaluating a discretized PDE-based model. The degrees of freedom of such a model can be partitioned in free and prescribed sets to define the boundary conditions. A multi-partition problem involves multiple partitions of the same discretization, typically...

The design of high-precision motion stages, which must exhibit high dynamic performance, is a challenging task. Manual design is difficult, time-consuming, and leads to sub-optimal designs that fail to fully exploit the extended geometric freedom that additive manufacturing offers. By using topology optimization and incorporating all...

Topology optimization methods improve the structural performance of components. However, in food processing, medical, high-precision, and other industries' designs should also fulfil the requirement of being cleanable. An important aspect of cleanability is drainability, which entails that fluids can always run off the structure under just...

Topology optimization typically generates designs that exhibit significant geometrical complexity, which can pose difficulties for manufacturing and assembly. The number of occurrences of an important design feature, in particular intersections, increases with geometrical complexity. Intersections are essential for load transfer in many...

Stiffened shells and plates are widely used in engineering. Their performance is highly influenced by the arrangement, or layout, of stiffeners on the base shell or plate and the geometric features, or topology, of these stiffeners. Moreover, modular design is beneficial, since it allows for increased quality control and mass production. In...
