Title: Data Sciences Summer Institute Topology Optimization

Abstract

DSSI_TOPOPT is a 2D topology optimization code that designs stiff structures made of a single linear elastic material and void space. The code generates a finite element mesh of a rectangular design domain on which the user specifies displacement and load boundary conditions. The code iteratively designs a structure that minimizes the compliance (maximizes the stiffness) of the structure under the given loading, subject to an upper bound on the amount of material used. Depending on user options, the code can evaluate the performance of a user-designed structure, or create a design from scratch. Output includes the finite element mesh, design, and visualizations of the design.
