Topology Optimization of Compliant Mechanisms Using Level Set Method without Re-Initialization

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper, a new level set method for topology optimization of compliant mechanisms is presented. A new formulation is developed and built in the traditional level set method to force the level set function to be close to a signed distance function during the optimal process. The validity of the method is illustrated by topology optimization of a widely studied compliant mechanism.
