Optimal Design of Aero-Engine Stator Structure with Combined Shape and Topology Optimization Method
In this paper, the lightweight design of an aero-engine stator structure is studied as an application case. Different kinds of loading conditions are taken into account. Mathematical formulations of the optimization problem are presented. Two optimization strategies combining shape and topology optimization are tested to get optimal design results.
