Structural Topology Optimization for Street Lamp Bracket
Structural topology optimization has got a general acceptance in recent years in mechanical design due to its powerful technique for conceptual design. The shortcoming of current development process of mechanical design is discussed and a new approach with structural topology optimization is put forward. The application of the method demonstrates that through innovative utilization of the topology optimization techniques, a multitude of conceptual design proposals based on the design space and design targets can be obtained and then a CAD model with high quality which has a positive impact on the development process is also available.
