Abstract

This work aims at the development of a topological optimization software with geometric nonlinearity, mecflex and model order reduction (MOR). The topology optimization analysis is performed using algorithms that use the gradient of the objective function coupled with design constraints. Finite element analysis is performed by Ansys, one of the most widely used commercial software. There is no software currently using solver as Ansys. This increases the commercial viability of the project. (AU)
