Cast glass is a promising structural material that has seen increasing use in the build environment over the last year. It offers a great freedom of shape for designers and engineers, beyond the two-dimensional float glass that is still primarily used. Despite this, cast glass in practice has only been used for solid bricks, mimicking...

Microstructural materials with spatially-varying properties, such as trabecular bone tissue, are widely seen in nature. These functionally graded structures possess smoothly changing microscale topologies that enable performance far superior to that of their base material. While the optimization of periodic microstructures has been studied in...

TenneT’s vision of the North Sea Infrastructure (NSI) creates a basis for a joint European approach up to 2050 which focuses specifically on developing the North Sea as a source and distribution hub for Europe’s energy transition. High wind speed, central location and shallow water qualify the Dogger Bank as the location of the central hub.<br/...

The stringent and conflicting requirements of optomechanical instruments and the ever-increasing need for higher resolution and quality imagery demands a tightly integrated design approach. The aim of this study is to drive the thermomechanical design of multiple components of an optomechanical instruments by the system’s optical performance....

An active fluid heat exchanger can be controlled effectively using Peltier elements to condition the temperature of the fluid flowing through the heat exchanger. The thermal resistance of the heat exchanger can be reduced to increase the speed of controlling the fluid's temperature. Topology optimization is used in this study to find the...

Structural design optimization is the process of obtaining an optimized structure while satisfying a set of criteria. The process can be divided into three stages: topology optimization (stage one), geometry extraction (stage two) and shape optimization (stage three). The last two stages are regarded to be the post-processor of topology...

So far, structural topology optimization has been mainly focused on linear problems. Much less attention has been paid to geometrically nonlinear problems, although it has a lot of interesting applications. The objective of this work is to implement a method to solve topology optimization problems under finite displacements and rotations. The...

For this thesis an additively manufactured(AM) glass connection was researched. The aim was to see if it was possible to use plastic based AM for end use parts in the façade. This was done in three parts, which are presented in this thesis. The first part consists of research in all currently available technology that could be used to create...

Optical systems in high precision equipment become increasingly more complex due to the raising number of optical mounts used for mounting and positioning of optical components. Additional, the installation of electronics and inert gas purging systems to protect the optics against the abrasive optical beam extends the amount of components in the...

Topology optimization is an automated design approach for structural applications that is gaining popularity in industry, including the aerospace sector. Resulting designs can be made suitable for traditional manufacturing techniques, although it is a technique that is particularly useful for non-conventional approaches such as additive...

This report has been written to serve as an introduction to the basics of GPU computing for mechanical engineers working in the field of structural optimization. In this work, the ability of GPUs to reduce the computation time of topology optimization problems is investigated. The programming paradigm of data parallel computing is introduced....

Topology optimization is the process of optimizing both the material layout and the connectivity inside a design domain. The first paper on topology optimization dates back to 1904, when the Australian inventor Michell derived optimality criteria for minimum weight truss structures. In 1988 Bendsøe and Kikuchi published the pioneering paper ...

Topology optimization is increasingly used as a design tool in engineering. Within structural mechanics, most applications focus on statics. An extension to time-domain (transient) dynamics will have many useful applications, but this is currently hindered by high computational costs. The goal of this research is to reduce these costs by...

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...

Discharge capacity is an important factor that determines the performance of lithium ion battery. The internal resistance of the electrodes influence the discharge capacity. As the electrode geometry influences its resistance, topology optimization can be applied to determine the electrode shape such that it has a minimal internal resistance and...

The design of high performance instruments often involves the attenuation of poorly damped resonant modes. These resonant modes are a limiting factor to the performance of these instruments. Current design approaches typically start from a baseline design and introduce stiffening or damping reinforce- ments to tune and/or damp these modes....

Heat exchangers have long been used in a wide variety of industrial applications, such as for energy recovery from by-products, temperature regulation in chemical processes, refrigeration, or cooling of car engines. Typically, each application requires a different type of heat exchanger such as, tube, shell, with/without phase change, mixing/non...
