Evolutionary methods for topology optimisation of continuum structures: static and dynamic problems

Yang, Xiaoying (2002) Evolutionary methods for topology optimisation of continuum structures: static and dynamic problems. PhD thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis studies the topology optimisation of continuum structures. Two methods have been investigated, namely. Evolutionary Structural Optimisation (ESO) and Bidirectional ESO (BESO). The basic concept of ESO is that by systematically removing inefficient materials from the structure, the residual shape evolves toward an optimum. BESO is an extension of ESO by allowing for adding efficient materials.
