Topology Optimization Design for Truss Structures
Duan Baoyan He Ming(Xian University of Electronical Science and Technology)
In this paper, an algorithm for topology optimization design of trusses is presented. In the approach, the optimal topology structure is found by use of the simplex method. The m+n behaviour constraints are linked to n independent behaviour constraints. For the solution of Lp, displacement field must be given previously. In addition, the expert system is applied to the structural mobility analysis putting forward an improved scheme. Finally, several examples are given to demonstrate the algorithm.
