The Strut-and-Tie model (STM) is an efficient technique for the design of concrete structures, but the creation of suitable truss structures gets complicated when these structures become more complex. The topology optimization (TO) is a convenient technique that has been used in recent years for the creation of trusses of complex structures for...

In modern ASML machines optical components play an important role in the lithography process. EUV light is transported from the source to wafer by reflective optics. These mirrors are subjected to large thermal loading, as a large portion of the reflected light is absorbed in the mirror structure. The portion of the absorbed light is strongly...

Wave barriers are a common mitigation measure when dealing with environmentally induced vibrations. These wave barriers generally consist of stiff vertical walls buried in the soil to impede waves on their path from the source to the receiver. The geometries of the wave barriers that are used in practice are very simple. More complex geometries...

The present thesis has the objective to create a procedure for the automatic preliminary design of reinforced concrete structures, based on the Evolutionary Structural Optimization method (ESO). The developed algorithm performs heuristic topology optimization based on multiple criteria, in subsequent optimization cycles executed in series. In...

Topology Optimization is an optimization problem based on the distribution of material within a design domain under specific load states. The goal of this technology is minimizing a certain function, such as compliance, mass or frequency. <br/>This technology can improve the performance of components in different fields within the shipbuilding...

Topology optimization is widely used within the academic environment. It is however not yet a standard design tool within the commercial industry. My research aims to shorten this gap by applying a topology optimization for an industrial design load. The design load is from a Printed Circuit Assembly (PCA) that requires active cooling in order...

Additive manufacturing, colloquially known as 3D printing, is a production process that offers possibilities compared to conventional production methods. Current methods involve shaping or removing of material to create parts, where additive manufacturing adds material. Several industries have successfully implemented the technology showing...

The ever growing population of human beings on earth introduces the challenge of providing affordable, sustainable energy for everyone. Emerging markets, such as China, India or Brazil, quench their thirst for cheap energy by fossil fuels and nuclear power. At the same time researchers from all over the globe warn the public of the advent of a...

Verbart, A. (author)
This thesis contains contributions to the development of topology optimization techniques capable of handling stress constraints. The research that led to these contributions was motivated by the need for topology optimization techniques more suitable for industrial applications. Currently, topology optimization is mainly used in the initial...
