Multi-attribute topology optimization of frame vehicle structures
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Topology optimization of beam structures is considered in this paper where we also introduce cost as a state in addition to the structural properties such as weight and compliance. Cost for beams is here assumed to be composed by material cost and detail cost. An example structure is thoroughly evaluated in order to examine the total design space of topologies for the structure. A method to find a less costly structure is discussed and an application example is shown.
