Paper Title:
A Topology Optimization Approach and its Application in the Design of a Key Connecting Component of a Harvester
  Abstract

This paper focuses on an approach to topology optimization and its engineering application. Based on SIMP (Solid Isotropic Microstructure with Penalization) method combined with Guide-Weight method, an approach to solve topology optimization problems is proposed. Then the topology optimization is applied in the design of a key connecting component in a sorghum harvester by the use of proposed method. The derivation process of the iteration formulations demonstrates that the proposed approach has the advantages of easiness to derive and good universality. The result is satisfactory and the convergence speed is fast enough for engineering application.
