Paper Title:
Multidomain Topology Optimization for Crashworthiness Based on Hybrid Cellular Automata
  Abstract

This research introduces a multidomain topology optimization algorithm for crashworthy structure undergoing large deformations. This technique makes use of the hybrid cellular automaton framework, which combines transient, non-linear finite-element analysis and local control rules acting on cells. The set of all cells defines the multidomains. Each subdomain has been defined by different material update rules according to specify constraint, and optimization iteration of each subdomain has been converged respectively during the optimal design process. The effectiveness of this technique is demonstrated through the design of a bumper-like structure. Result show that the new algorithm is suitable for practical applications. The case study presented demonstrates the potential significance of this work for a wide range of engineering design problems.
