Resumo

This work presents a level set framework to solve topology optimization problems subject to local stress constraints considering design-dependent pressure loads. Two technical difficulties are related to this problem. The first one is the local nature of stresses. To deal with this issue, stress constraints are included to the problem by means of an Augmented Lagrangian scheme. The second is the adequate association between the moving boundary and the pressure acting on it. This difficulty is easily overcome by the level set method that allows for a clear tracking of the boundary along the optimization process. In the present approach, a reaction-diffusion equation substitutes the classical Hamilton-Jacobi equation to control the level set evolution. This choice has the advantage of allowing the nucleation of holes inside the domain and the elimination of the undesirable level set reinitializations. In addition, the optimization algorithm allows the rupture of loading boundaries, that is, the crossing of the pressured (wet) boundary with the traction free boundary is not avoided. This gives more freedom to the algorithm for topological changes. In order to validate the proposed scheme against stress concentrations, all numerical examples are performed on constrained domains containing singularities. Moreover, optimized designs obtained from stress-constrained and compliance problems are compared. (C) 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
