Shape and topology optimization in application (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Shape and topology optimization currently is of high interest for applications but also from a theoretical point of view. Recently, new developments in the shape calculus and in a related calculus for topology have enabled successful solutions of challenging optimization problems. This talk specifically reports on parameter free shape optimization in aerodynamics, thermoelastics and acoustics. Furthermore, novel results for the elastic topology optimization of the interior of wings are presented. We will try to give insight into the challenges in this field as well as the numerical solution approaches.
