Abstract

Topology optimization provides a rigorous method for the conceptual design of structural components. In this note, a practical approach for solving topology optimization problems of planar cross-sections is discussed. A problem formulation involving the use of continuous design variables is presented, and a standard nonlinear programming algorithm is used to solve the optimization problem. Results of the technique for two examples are presented and compared to similar results in the literature.
