In this paper, we propose a new method for topology optimization with local stress constraints. In this method, material in which a stress constraint is violated is considered as damaged. Since damaged material will contribute less to the overall performance of the structure, the optimizer will promote a design with a minimal amount of damaged...

This contribution presents a novel and versatile approach to geometrically nonlinear topology optimization by combining the level-set method with the element connectivity parameterization method or ECP. The combined advantages of both methods open up the possibility to treat a wide range of optimization problems involving complex physical and/or...

This article illustrates the opportunities that combining computational modeling and systematic design optimization techniques offer to facilitate the design process of shape memory alloy (SMA) structures. Focus is on shape memory behavior due to the R-phase transformation in Ni-Ti, for which a dedicated constitutive model is formulated. In this...
