Is topological optimisation really optimal?

Summary

Light-weight, efficient product design is one of the key drivers behind the increasing adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) for series production. AM supports a range of light-weighting approaches including generative design techniques such as topological optimisation. These iterative methods explore many possible design solutions and result in components with organic forms that mimic efficient natural structures.

The feature article includes:

  • Topological optimisation basics
  • Sub-optimal optimisation
  • Intelligent design optimisation
  • A comparison of AM design solutions including finite element analysis (FEA)
