    A Smooth Bidirectional Evolutionary Structural Optimization of Vibrational Structures for Natural Frequency and Dynamic Compliance

    Xiaoyan Teng1, Qiang Li1, Xudong Jiang2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.135, No.3, pp. 2479-2496, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.023110

    Abstract A smooth bidirectional evolutionary structural optimization (SBESO), as a bidirectional version of SESO is proposed to solve the topological optimization of vibrating continuum structures for natural frequencies and dynamic compliance under the transient load. A weighted function is introduced to regulate the mass and stiffness matrix of an element, which has the inefficient element gradually removed from the design domain as if it were undergoing damage. Aiming at maximizing the natural frequency of a structure, the frequency optimization formulation is proposed using the SBESO technique. The effects of various weight functions including constant, linear and sine functions on structural optimization… More >

    Topology Optimization with Aperiodic Load Fatigue Constraints Based on Bidirectional Evolutionary Structural Optimization

    Yongxin Li1, Guoyun Zhou1, Tao Chang1,*, Liming Yang2, Fenghe Wu1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.130, No.1, pp. 499-511, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.017630

    Abstract Because of descriptive nonlinearity and computational inefficiency, topology optimization with fatigue life under aperiodic loads has developed slowly. A fatigue constraint topology optimization method based on bidirectional evolutionary structural optimization (BESO) under an aperiodic load is proposed in this paper. In view of the severe nonlinearity of fatigue damage with respect to design variables, effective stress cycles are extracted through transient dynamic analysis. Based on the Miner cumulative damage theory and life requirements, a fatigue constraint is first quantified and then transformed into a stress problem. Then, a normalized termination criterion is proposed by approximate maximum stress measured by global… More >
