Topology optimization of convection-diffusion problems
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
We have extended previously developed methodologies for topology optimization of solid structures and Stokes flow to convectiondiffusion problems. The problem considered here is the optimal layout of heat-exchanging designs. The goal is a uniform temperature distribution and the weighted sum of two objectives is minimized subject to a fluid volume constraint. The two objectives are the weighted integral average of the temperature and the average pressure dropin the domain. The optimization problem is solved using sequential convex programming. A filter is used as a restriction method to limit the minimum channel width. We present three numerical examples.
