Topology optimization of mechanical structures

This talk is about the recent developments in the field of topology optimization at the Department of Solid Mechanics, DTU, in Denmark. There will be, depending on the audience, an introduction to the general terminology in topology optimization; what are the problems and benefits. The use of topology optimization in design of compliant mechanisms will be discussed and examples will be presented. Finally some ideas for the future work of my Ph.D. project with the preliminary title "Simultaneous topology design of structures and supports" will be presented.
