Paper Title:
Topology Optimization on the Material Distribution of Track Segment for Heavy Machinery
  Abstract

To achieve the rational shape and structure of large or super-large track segment, this paper investigated the optimal material distribution law of the track segment with topology optimization by variable density method. In this method the element density of the optimal area is the design variable, the maximum stiffness between the track segment and the terrain is the object, and the material volume per centum of the optimal area is the constraint. In this study, we obtained the topology optimal results of a track segment for a certain heavy-machinery by OPTISTRUCT software. The paper also presented the transitional geometrical distribution law of the optimal material from solid state to hollow state at the same constraint of the material volume percentum and at the different terrain stiffness. Finally, the optimal shape was put into application.
