Modelling, Solving and Applications for Topology Optimization of Continuum Structures: ICM Method Based on Step Function provides an introduction to the history of structural optimization, along with a summary of the existing state-of-the-art research on topology optimization of continuum structures. It systematically introduces basic concepts and principles of ICM method, also including modeling and solutions to complex engineering problems with different constraints and boundary conditions. The book features many numerical examples that are solved by the ICM method, helping researchers and engineers solve their own problems on topology optimization.
This valuable reference is ideal for researchers in structural optimization design, teachers and students in colleges and universities working, and majoring in, related engineering fields, and structural engineers.
- Offers a comprehensive discussion that includes both the mathematical basis and establishment of optimization models
- Centers on the application of ICM method in various situations with the introduction of easily coded software
- Provides illustrations of a large number of examples to facilitate the applications of ICM method across a variety of disciplines
