Novel Methods of Topology Optimization and Engineering Applications

As a promising design tool, topology optimization has experienced tremendous progress. Aiming to allocate the available material to maximize system performance while satisfying multiple constraints, a number of branches have come into emergence, e.g. homogenization method, Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization (SIMP), Evolutionary Structural Optimization (ESO) and Bi-directional Evolutionary Structural Optimization (BESO), level set method (LSM), phase field method, moving morphable components or voids (MMC, MMV) method. In recent years, several novel methods on topology optimization have emerged, such as parametric level set method, moving morphable components method, new bubble method and the combination with traditional technique.


We initiate this special issue to highlight the new developments of topology optimization methods and their applications, with particular focus on theory developments, numerical implementations and potential applications.


Potential topics include but are not limited to:

(1) New topology optimization method, theory, numerical technique and its engineering application

(2) Metamaterial material design, bionics design, multi-scale design by topology optimization method

(3) Topology optimization method related to nonlinearity, buckling, stress, fatigue and multiple physical problems

(4) Topology optimization combined with large-scale computation or reliability
