    Development of a Graded Lattice Structure Design and Optimization Method with Complex Boundary Surface Constraints

    Zhujiang Wang1,*, Yizhou Wang1, Bin Zhai1

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.26, No.3, pp. 1-2, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09242

    Abstract Graded lattice structures (GLS) are used widely in the areas of 3D printed sensors, personalized wearable devices, robotics, energy absorption, etc., and have a prospective future in the field of personalized medical devices. The large-scale applications of GLS-based personalized medical devices require a GLS design method that could handle the challenges caused by diverse boundary surface constraints and various requirements of graded mechanical properties [1,2], due to patient-specific care needs. In this work, the proposed automatic seed generation algorithm-based GLS design approach is a prospective solution to promote the wide application of GLS-based personalized medical devices [3,4].

    Skeleton-Based Volumetric Parameterizations for Lattice Structures

    Long Chen1,*, Shuxun Liang2, Nan Yan2, Xiangqian Yang2, Baotong Li3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.135, No.1, pp. 687-709, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.021986

    Abstract Lattice structures with excellent physical properties have attracted great research interest. In this paper, a novel volume parametric modeling method based on the skeleton model is proposed for the construction of three-dimensional lattice structures. The skeleton model is divided into three types of nodes. And the corresponding algorithms are utilized to construct diverse types of volume parametric nodes. The unit-cell is assembled with distinct nodes according to the geometric features. The final lattice structure is created by the periodic arrangement of unit-cells. Several different types of volume parametric lattice structures are constructed to prove the stability and applicability of the… More > Graphic Abstract

    Multi-Material and Multiscale Topology Design Optimization of Thermoelastic Lattice Structures

    Jun Yan1,2, Qianqian Sui1, Zhirui Fan1, Zunyi Duan3,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.130, No.2, pp. 967-986, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.017708

    Abstract This study establishes a multiscale and multi-material topology optimization model for thermoelastic lattice structures (TLSs) considering mechanical and thermal loading based on the Extended Multiscale Finite Element Method (EMsFEM). The corresponding multi-material and multiscale mathematical formulation have been established with minimizing strain energy and structural mass as the objective function and constraint, respectively. The Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization (SIMP) interpolation scheme has been adopted to realize micro-scale multi-material selection of truss microstructure. The modified volume preserving Heaviside function (VPHF) is utilized to obtain a clear 0/1 material of truss microstructure. Compared with the classic topology optimization of single-material TLSs,… More >
