Recent developments in topology design of materials and mechanisms
Department of Mathematics Matematiktorvet, B. 303 Technical University of Denmark, DK-2800 Lyngby, Denmark
This paper gives a brief introduction to some of the methods used in topology design of continuum structures and to their use for the design of materials and mechanisms. This encompasses the use of topology design in design of materials with extreme properties, and the introduction of buckling criteria in such design problems. A topic is also the design of isotropic composites which realize certain popular interpolation schemes used in topology design (making the dog bite its tail). Finally, examples of the design of flexible mechanisms will be discussed.
