A R&D software platform for shape and topology optimization using body-fitted meshes

Abstract : Topology optimization is devoted to the optimal design of structures: It aims at finding the best material distribution inside a working domain while fulfilling mechanical, geometrical and manufacturing specifications. Conceptually different from parametric or size optimization, topology optimization relies on a freeform approach enabling to search for the optimal design in a larger space of configurations and promoting disruptive design. The need for lighter and efficient structural solutions has made topology optimization a vigorous research field in both academic and industrial structural engineering communities. This contribution presents a Research and Development software platform for shape and topology optimization where the computational process is carried out in a level set framework combined with a body-fitted approach.
