Introduction to Structural Optimization (3 Days) - Technology Course
Designing products today poses many challenges and often conflicting requirements need to be satisfied: they must be stronger, lighter, safer, quieter.
This three-day course provides an overview of the theoretical concepts behind general constrained nonlinear optimization. Emphasis will be on applications in structural optimization using finite element models such as size, shape, topology and topometry optimization. Methods are outlined with minimum mathematics and are illustrated by practical software implementations and applications.
The FEMtools Optimization software will be used for hands-on exercises during approximately half of the time. Participants are invited to bring a portable computer to use during the hands-on exercises.
