Topology Optimization of an MBB Beam

Application ID: 7428

A demonstration of topology optimization using the Structural Mechanics Module and the Optimization Module. Three classical models are shown, the loaded knee, the Michell truss structure, and MBB beam. The optimization method is based on using the SIMPS approach to recast the original combinatorial optimization problem into a continuous optimization problem.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
