Topology optimisation using level set methods and the discontinuous Galerkin method.

Adams, T. and Giani, S. and Coombs, W.M. (2016) 'Topology optimisation using level set methods and the discontinuous Galerkin method.', in Proceedings of the 24th UK Conference of the Association for Computational Mechanics in Engineering, 31 March - 01 April 2016, Cardiff University, Cardiff. Cardiff: Cardiff University, pp. 6-9.


This paper presents a topology optimisation approach that combines an adjoint-based sensitivity analysis [1] with level set methods (LSM) [2] for front propagation, and the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) symmetric interior penalty (SIP) method [3]. The problems considered in this paper will be limited to the minimum compliance design of two-dimensional linear elastic structures.
