Topology Optimisation

Topology optimization describes a generative process for the creation of minimum weight structures with maximum stiffness.

For a description see:

Bendsøe, Martin P., and Ole Sigmund. Topology Optimization: Theory, Methods and Applications. Berlin Heidelberg, 2003 : Springer Verlag, 2nd. edition 2003.

Some screendumps, workstudies and studies for topology optimized geometries, all wip. tests are done with http://www.topopt.dtu.dk/ the design space is subdivided into discrete tetrahedra or block entities that are calculated with Finite Element analysis for identification of structural fitness.

It is interesting to investigate this design method as a translation of tradional formfinding methods, that reference frei otto, gaudi , heinrich huebsch and others.
