Multi-material phase field approach to structural topology optimization and its relation to sharp interface approach (English)
[ Abstract ]
A phase field approach for structural topology optimization which allows for topology changes and multiple materials is analyzed. First order optimality conditions are rigorously derived and it is shown via formally matched asymptotic expansions that these conditions converge to classical first order conditions obtained in the context of shape calculus. Finally, we present several numerical results for mean compliance problems and a cost involving the least square error to a target displacement. This is joint work with Luise Blank, Harald Garcke and Vanessa Styles.
