Topology Optimization of Continuum Structures Based on SIMP
An Optimality Criteria method for topology optimization of continuum structures based on Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization (SIMP) was proposed. The minimum compliance of structures was selected as the objective function of the problem. A mathematical model for topology optimization design of statically loaded structures and the update scheme for the design variables were set. The examples showed that the algorithm has good convergence and application values.
