A first laboratory exercise in topology optimization using matlab
2006 (English)Report (Other academic)
The purpose of this laboratory exercise is to give you experience with the use of topology optimization as a first design tool in doing a construction. A 99 line topology optimization code written in Matlab will be used. The code is available at
The details are explained in the paper “A 99 line topology optimization code writter in Matlab” which is published in the journal “Structual and Multidisciplinary Optimization” by Ole Sigmund, dept. of solid mechanics at Technical University of Denmark. The matlab code is also included as an appendix.
This matlab code should give understanding of the basics of a topology optimization program, and the user can easily modify the code
The laboratory exercise is divided into two parts. The first part is about the design of bicycles and is intended to make you familiar with the methodology and the matlab code. The second part consists of a bunch of projects that can be treated in the same way as the bicycle. It is advisable to choose one of the projects in the second part.
