    <title>Abstract</title>In this paper, we propose a sensitivity-free and multi-objective structural design methodology called <italic>data-driven topology design</italic>. It is schemed to obtain high-performance material distributions from initially given material distributions in a given design domain. Its basic idea is to iterate the following processes: (i) selecting material distributions from a dataset of material distributions according to eliteness, (ii) generating new material distributions using a deep generative model trained with the selected elite material distributions, and (iii) merging the generated material distributions with the dataset. Because of the nature of a deep generative model, the generated material distributions are diverse and inherit features of the training data, that is, the elite material distributions. Therefore, it is expected that some of the generated material distributions are superior to the current elite material distributions, and by merging the generated material distributions with the dataset, the performances of the newly selected elite material distributions are improved. The performances are further improved by iterating the above processes. The usefulness of data-driven topology design is demonstrated through numerical examples.

  • Three-dimensional topology optimization model to simulate the external shapes of bone.

    Misaki Sakashita, Shintaro Yamasaki, Kentaro Yaji, Atsushi Kawamoto, Shigeru Kondo

    PLoS computational biology   17 ( 6 ) e1009043  2021.06  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    Elucidation of the mechanism by which the shape of bones is formed is essential for understanding vertebrate development. Bones support the body of vertebrates by withstanding external loads, such as those imposed by gravity and muscle tension. Many studies have reported that bone formation varies in response to external loads. An increased external load induces bone synthesis, whereas a decreased external load induces bone resorption. This relationship led to the hypothesis that bone shape adapts to external load. In fact, by simulating this relationship through topology optimization, the internal trabecular structure of bones can be successfully reproduced, thereby facilitating the study of bone diseases. In contrast, there have been few attempts to simulate the external structure of bones, which determines vertebrate morphology. However, the external shape of bones may be reproduced through topology optimization because cells of the same type form both the internal and external structures of bones. Here, we constructed a three-dimensional topology optimization model to attempt the reproduction of the external shape of teleost vertebrae. In teleosts, the internal structure of the vertebral bodies is invariable, exhibiting an hourglass shape, whereas the lateral structure supporting the internal structure differs among species. Based on the anatomical observations, we applied different external loads to the hourglass-shaped part. The simulations produced a variety of three-dimensional structures, some of which exhibited several structural features similar to those of actual teleost vertebrae. In addition, by adjusting the geometric parameters, such as the width of the hourglass shape, we reproduced the variation in the teleost vertebrae shapes. These results suggest that a simulation using topology optimization can successfully reproduce the external shapes of teleost vertebrae. By applying our topology optimization model to various bones of vertebrates, we can understand how the external shape of bones adapts to external loads.

  • Topology design of two-fluid heat exchange

    Hiroki Kobayashi, Kentaro Yaji, Shintaro Yamasaki, Kikuo Fujita

    Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization   63 ( 2 ) 821 - 834  2021.02  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    <title>Abstract</title>Heat exchangers are devices that typically transfer heat between two fluids. The performance of a heat exchanger such as heat transfer rate and pressure loss strongly depends on the flow regime in the heat transfer system. In this paper, we present a density-based topology optimization method for a two-fluid heat exchange system, which achieves a maximum heat transfer rate under fixed pressure loss. We propose a representation model accounting for three states, i.e., two fluids and a solid wall between the two fluids, by using a single design variable field. The key aspect of the proposed model is that mixing of the two fluids can be essentially prevented. This is because the solid constantly exists between the two fluids due to the use of the single design variable field. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method through three-dimensional numerical examples in which an optimized design is compared with a simple reference design, and the effects of design conditions (i.e., Reynolds number, Prandtl number, design domain size, and flow arrangements) are investigated.

  • Layout Design of Components and Conductors in Noise Filter by Integrative Optimization of Structural Topology and External Variables

    MARUYAMA Shun, YAMASAKI Shintaro, NOMURA Katsuya, YAJI Kentaro, FUJITA Kikuo

     View Summary

    <p>This paper presents a layout design method of a noise filter that simultaneously optimizes an arrangement of electrical components and a conductor pattern. A conductor design method has been proposed based on topology optimization, but its solutions are limited to sub-optimal under the viewpoint of overall optimality, because the arrangement of components is treated as a given condition. For integratively optimizing both of them, this study extends a topology optimization framework incorporating external variables with metamodeling, where the external variables correspond to the arrangement of components. A face-centered cubic design and sequential addition of samples are introduced to efficiently perform its metamodeling even under large number of external variables. Two numerical examples of noise filter design problems are demonstrated, and their results show that the integrative optimization significantly improves the filter performance as compared with non-integrative optimization.</p>

     View Summary

    <title>Abstract</title>
    The objective of conventional topology optimization is to optimize the material distribution for a prescribed design domain. However, solving the topology optimization problem strongly depends on the settings specified by the designer for the shape of the design domain or their specification of the boundary conditions. This contradiction indicates that the improvement of structures should be achieved by optimizing not only the material distribution but also the additional design variables that specify the above settings. We refer to the additional design variables as external variables. This paper presents our work relating to solving the design problem of topology optimization incorporating external variables. The approach we follow is to formulate the design problem as a multi-level optimization problem by focusing on the dominance-dependence relationship between external variables and material distribution. We propose a framework to solve the optimization problem utilizing the multi-level formulation and metamodeling. The metamodel approximates the relationship between the external variables and the performance of the corresponding optimized material distribution. The effectiveness of the framework is demonstrated by presenting three examples.

  • Production of the different shapes of the vertebral bodies among teleost fish species by the mathematical model using topology optimization

    SAKASHITA Misaki, YAMASAKI Shintaro, YAJI Kentaro, KONDO Shigeru

    The Proceedings of Design & Systems Conference   2019   2108 - 2108  2019

     View Summary

    <p>We aim to understand the mechanism that forms the shapes of bones. Biological studies suggest that bone morphology is adapted to the external loads. To explain how the external loads affect bone morphogenesis, the mathematical models have been developed using topology optimization. Using these mathematical models, the structure like trabeculae can be generated. However, the formation of external shapes of bones has rarely been studied. Because the inner structure and the external shape of bones are formed by the same types of cells, we hypothesize that the formation of external shape also depends on the external loads and can be explained by topology optimization. The vertebral body of fish we focus on exhibits the various shapes and its morphology seems to be closely related to the swimming mode of fish. To reveal the relationship between the vertebral shapes and the external loads, we built a mathematical model using topology optimization. By setting the different loadings expected to occur during swimming of fish, the model can produce the shapes similar to the vertebral bodies of the different species. Numerical results suggest that the external load is one of the main factors to determine the shape of vertebral bodies of teleost fish. Also, this mathematical model enables us to discuss what external load is important to form each vertebral shape of the different species.</p>

     View Summary

    This paper presents topology optimization for the design of flow fields in vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs), which are large-scale storage systems for renewable energy resources such as solar and wind power. It is widely known that, in recent VRFB systems, one of the key factors in boosting charging or discharging efficiency is the design of the flow field around carbon fiber electrodes and in flow channels. In this study, topology optimization is applied in order to achieve optimized flow field designs. The optimization problem is formulated as a maximization problem for the generation rate of the vanadium species governed by a simplified electrochemical reaction model. A typical porous model is incorporated into the optimization problem for expressing the carbon fiber electrode
    furthermore, a mass transfer coefficient that depends on local velocity is introduced. We investigate the dependencies of the optimized configuration with respect to the porosity of the porous electrode and the pressure loss. Results indicate that patterns of interdigitated flow fields are valid designs for VRFBs.

     View Summary

    In this paper, we propose a three-dimensional (3D) grayscale-free topology optimization method using a conforming mesh to the structural boundary, which is represented by the level-set method. The conforming mesh is generated in an r-refinement manner; that is, it is generated by moving the nodes of the Eulerian mesh that maintains the level-set function. Although the r-refinement approach for the conforming mesh generation has many benefits from an implementation aspect, it has been considered as a difficult task to stably generate 3D conforming meshes in the r-refinement manner. To resolve this task, we propose a new level-set based r-refinement method. Its main novelty is a procedure for minimizing the number of the collapsed elements whose nodes are moved to the structural boundary in the conforming mesh; in addition, we propose a new procedure for improving the quality of the conforming mesh, which is inspired by Laplacian smoothing. Because of these novelties, the proposed r-refinement method can generate 3D conforming meshes at a satisfactory level, and 3D grayscale-free topology optimization is realized. The usefulness of the proposed 3D grayscale-free topology optimization method is confirmed through several numerical examples. Copyright (C) 2017 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    STRUCTURAL AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY OPTIMIZATION   55 ( 3 ) 987 - 999  2017.03  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Orthotropic elastic moduli of composite structures can be identified by nonlinear least squares fit between measured and computed natural frequencies. However, due to measurement errors contained in the measured natural frequencies and mode shapes, the process of elastic moduli identification is error-prone. This paper proposes an efficient method to estimate the errors in the elastic moduli caused by the measurement errors in the natural frequencies. The method utilizes an efficient semi-analytic expression of the sensitivities of the eigenvalues with respect to the orthotropic elastic moduli. First, the first-order approximation of the analytic sensitivity of orthotropic elastic moduli with respect to the measurement errors is introduced. The approximation is then used to estimate the variability of the identified elastic moduli due to the measurement errors. It is shown that the aspect ratio of the test specimen greatly affects the standard deviation of the identified elastic moduli. Second, using the first-order approximation, the effects of aspect ratio of the test specimen as well as the values of the elastic moduli are further investigated. Based on the results of numerical experiments, guidelines for the dimension of the test specimen for the elastic moduli identification are proposed.

  • Grayscale-free topology optimization for electromagnetic design problem of in-vehicle reactor

    Shintaro Yamasaki, Atsushi Kawamoto, Akira Saito, Masakatsu Kuroishi, Kikuo Fujita

    STRUCTURAL AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY OPTIMIZATION   55 ( 3 ) 1079 - 1090  2017.03  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    In this paper, we propose grayscale-free topology optimization for a reactor design problem where the electromagnetic performance needs to be optimized. A reactor is an electric device to boost electric voltage, and is used as a part of a DC-DC converter in electric and hybrid vehicles. When designing reactors, we need to consider many performance indicators such as inductance and fringing loss. In general, high-performance reactor design that satisfies all requirements is not obvious, and topology optimization is promising for such non-trivial design problems. In this paper, we therefore establish a framework for the electromagnetic design of an in-vehicle reactor on the basis of boundary tracking type level-set topology optimization, which realizes grayscale-free topology optimization. Because of its grayscale-free characteristic, the established framework can completely resolve the numerical problems caused by the so-called grayscale elements. We present several numerical examples to demonstrate the usefulness of the established framework, and we discuss the possibilities for the expansion of the established framework to more difficult and valuable design problems.

    MECHANICAL SYSTEMS AND SIGNAL PROCESSING   72-73   607 - 628  2016.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    In this paper, a combined numerical-experimental methodology for the identification of elastic moduli of orthotropic media is presented. Special attention is given to the laminated electrical steel sheets, which are modeled as orthotropic media with nine independent engineering elastic moduli. The elastic moduli are determined specifically for use with finite element vibration analyses. We propose a three-step methodology based on a conventional nonlinear least squares fit between measured and computed natural frequencies. The methodology consists of: (1) successive augmentations of the objective function by increasing the number of modes, (2) initial condition updates, and (3) appropriate selection of the natural frequencies based on their sensitivities on the elastic moduli. Using the results of numerical experiments, it is shown that the proposed method achieves more accurate converged solution than a conventional approach. Finally, the proposed method is applied to measured natural frequencies and mode shapes of the laminated electrical steel sheets. It is shown that the method can successfully identify the orthotropic elastic moduli that can reproduce the measured natural frequencies and frequency response functions by using finite element analyses with a reasonable accuracy.

     View Summary

    This paper proposes a level-set based topology optimization method incorporating a boundary tracking mesh generating method and nonlinear programming. Because the boundary tracking mesh is always conformed to the structural boundary, good approximation to the boundary is maintained during optimization; therefore, structural design problems are solved completely without grayscale material. Previously, we introduced the boundary tracking mesh generating method into level-set based topology optimization and updated the design variables by solving the level-set equation. In order to adapt our previous method to general structural optimization frameworks, the incorporation of the method with nonlinear programming is investigated in this paper. To successfully incorporate nonlinear programming, the optimization problem is regularized using a double-well potential. Furthermore, the sensitivities with respect to the design variables are strictly derived to maintain consistency in mathematical programming. We expect the investigation to open up a new class of grayscale-free topology optimization. The usefulness of the proposed method is demonstrated using several numerical examples targeting two-dimensional compliant mechanism and metallic waveguide design problems.

    STRUCTURAL AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY OPTIMIZATION   51 ( 2 ) 369 - 383  2015.02  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Electrostatic actuators, actuators actuated by electrostatic forces, are now widely used as sensors and switches, especially in Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS). Among different kinds of electrostatic actuators, the comb drive type is one of the most popular because it has a relatively large range of displacement. In design problems for electrostatic actuators, the driving force profile is of primary engineering importance. In this paper, we develop a structural optimization method for comb drive electrostatic actuators that achieves prescribed driving force profiles, based on a level set-based shape optimization method that provides optimal configurations with clear boundaries, solutions that are valid in an engineering sense. Accurate calculation of the electrostatic forces that occur on the structural boundaries during optimization is important for developing actuators that operate with prescribed driving forces. In the conventional level set-based shape optimization methods, inaccuracies in the calculation of these electrostatic forces occur because the structural boundaries are seldom aligned with the finite element method (FEM) nodes. To precisely calculate the electrostatic forces, we developed a mesh adaptation scheme by which the finite element nodes are brought into alignment with the structural boundaries at every iteration of the optimization procedure. In the following, we explain the details of the proposed level set-based shape optimization method, in which a multi-objective optimization problem is formulated to achieve a prescribed driving force profile. The sensitivity is derived using the adjoint variable method. Four numerical examples are provided, to examine the suitability of the proposed optimization method.

  • General topology optimization method with continuous and discrete orientation design using isoparametric projection

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL FOR NUMERICAL METHODS IN ENGINEERING   101 ( 8 ) 571 - 605  2015.02  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    A general topology optimization method, which is capable of simultaneous design of density and orientation of anisotropic material, is proposed by introducing orientation design variables in addition to the density design variable. In this work, the Cartesian components of the orientation vector are utilized as the orientation design variables. The proposed method supports continuous orientation design, which is out of the scope of discrete material optimization approaches, as well as design using discrete angle sets. The advantage of this approach is that vector element representation is less likely to fail into local optima because it depends less on designs of former steps, especially compared with using the angle as a design variable (Continuous Fiber Angle Optimization) by providing a flexible path from one angle to another with relaxation of orientation design space. An additional advantage is that it is compatible with various projection or filtering methods such as sensitivity filters and density filters because it is free from unphysical bound or discontinuity such as the one at theta = 2 pi and theta = 0 seen with direct angle representation. One complication of Cartesian component representation is the point-wise quadratic bound of the design variables; that is, each pair of element values has to reside in a given circular bound. To overcome this issue, we propose an isoparametric projection method, which transforms box bounds into circular bounds by a coordinate transformation with isoparametric shape functions without having the singular point that is seen at the origin with polar coordinate representation. A new topology optimization method is built by taking advantage of the aforementioned features and modern topology optimization techniques. Several numerical examples are provided to demonstrate its capability. Copyright (C) 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Decomposition-based optimization has been a key approach for complicated design problems in multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO), but the main focus has been design problems where the design variables are continuous. On the other hand, various approaches have been developed for layout design based on evolutionary algorithms, e. g., simulated annealing (SA) and genetic algorithms (GAs) which can handle its combinatorial nature in an effective manner. In the present study, we aim to introduce a new paradigm by combining decomposition-based optimization and evolutionary algorithms for solving complicated layout design problems. In this approach, the original layout problem is decomposed into the top-level layout problem and a set of sublevel layout problems, where the layouts obtained from the sublevel problems are used as components of the top-level problem. Since the preferable shapes of these components are unclear when the sublevel problems are solved, a set of Pareto optima are provided in the sublevel problems and these solutions are used as candidate components in the top-level problem. A computational design algorithm is developed based on this approach, which represents the layout topology with sequence pair and the shape of each subsystem or component with the aspect ratio, and they are optimized using GAs. The Pareto optimality of the sublevels is handled by multi-objective GAs, and a set of Pareto optima is generated simultaneously. The top-level and sublevel layout problems are coordinated via the exchange of preferable ranges for the shapes and layout. This approach was implemented and applied to an example problem to demonstrate its performance and capability.

  • A level set-based topology optimization incorporating arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian method for wavelength filter using extraordinary optical transmission

     View Summary

    This paper deals with structural optimization for designing periodic structures in a hole array wavelength filter. The hole array wavelength filter that consists of metallic thin film and dielectric enables to transmit narrow bandwidth light. It is known that transmission spectrum can be changed not only by the periodicity of hole array but also by the shape of holes. For optimizing the hole shape, the level set method is used in this study. In the ordinary level set method, the boundaries are implicitly expressed by the zero level set of a scalar function, called the level set function, within a fixed mesh. Therefore, the material interpolation becomes numerically awkward within the elements across the implicit zero level set because those elements inevitably take on intermediate material properties even if the boundary of zero level set are mathematically clear. As the result, the optimization is likely to yield wrong solution. Here, a new level set optimization method incorporating Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian method is proposed to eliminate intermediate values on the interfaces perfectly. As a result, the proposed method can successfully perform the structural optimization of hole shape without intermediate values.

    In this paper, we proposed a regularization technique for boundary tracking type level-set topology optimization. This new regularization technique is based on the double-well potential and it realizes smooth convergence in boundary tracking type level-set topology optimization. Because of this regularization technique, boundary tracking type level-set topology optimization is well incorporated with the mathematical programming framework. The usefulness of the proposed regularization technique is demonstrated by solving two numerical examples.

     View Summary

    Most topology optimization problems are formulated as constrained optimization problems; thus, mathematical programming has been the mainstream. On the other hand, solving topology optimization problems using time evolution equations, seen in the level set-based and the phase field-based methods, is yet another approach. One issue is the treatment of multiple constraints, which is difficult to incorporate within time evolution equations. Another issue is the extra re-initialization steps that interrupt the time integration from time to time. This paper proposes a way to describe, using a Heaviside projection-based representation, a time-dependent diffusion equation that addresses these two issues. The constraints are treated using a modified augmented Lagrangian approach in which the Lagrange multipliers are updated by simple ordinary differential equations. The proposed method is easy to implement using a high-level finite element code. Also, it is very practical in the sense that one can fully utilize the existing framework of the code: GUI, parallelized solvers, animations, data imports/exports, and so on. The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated through numerical examples in both the planar and spatial cases. Copyright (c) 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

     View Summary

    This paper presents a level set-based structural optimization method for electrostatic actuator problems. Electrostatic actuators are electromechanical systems that are actuated by electrostatic forces. The development of MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) device production techniques has spurred widespread deployment of small-sized electrostatic actuators. This paper proposes a level set-based structural optimization method for electrostatic actuators that provides optimal configurations with clear boundaries. The main difficulty when applying a level set-based structural optimization method to electrostatic actuator design problems is the calculation of actuation forces, because these appear on structural boundaries that move during the optimization. Thus, the nodes of the finite element mesh may be displaced from the level set boundaries, causing inaccuracies. To accurately calculate the actuation forces on these surfaces, we develop an adaptive meshing scheme so that the nodes closest to the structural boundaries snap to the boundaries after each update of level set function. In our study, the electrostatic and elastic displacement fields are coupled. The sensitivity is derived using the adjoint variable method, and Maxwell's stress tensor is used to calculate actuation forces. We provide two numerical examples to verify the effectiveness of our proposed method. © 2013 The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers.

    This paper deals with continuum-based compliant mechanism design. In topology optimization, filtering techniques are used for the regularization of the design space. In the density design representation, convolution-type filters inherently produce gray transition regions between solids and voids. In order to reduce the gray transition regions, projection schemes have recently been proposed. Binarization, however, still leads to one-node connected hinges in compliant mechanism design. In this paper, we propose a method that incorporates the level set and arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian methods so that the gray transition regions are completely excluded and one-node connected hinges are not formed.

     View Summary

    In the last decade, metamaterials have been gaining attention and have been investigated because of their unique characteristics, which conventional materials do not have, such as negative refraction indexes. However, it is sometimes difficult to design metamaterials on the basis of experience and theoretical considerations because the relationship between their electromagnetic characteristics and structure is often vague. A mathematical structural design methodology targeting metamaterials may therefore be useful for expanding the engineering applications of metamaterials in industry. In this paper, a new level set-based topology optimization method is proposed for designing composite right- and left-handed transmission lines, each of which consists of a waveguide and periodically located dielectric resonators. Such transmission lines function as a fundamental metamaterial. In the proposed method, the shape and topology of the dielectric resonators are represented by the level set function, and topology optimization problems are formulated on the basis of the level set-based representation.

     View Summary

    This paper deals with topology optimization based on the Heaviside projection method using a scalar function as design variables. The scalar function is then regularized by a PDE based filter. Several image-processing based filtering techniques have so far been proposed for regularization or restricting the minimum length scale. They are conventionally applied to the design sensitivities rather than the design variables themselves. However, it causes discrepancies between the filtered sensitivities and the actual sensitivities that may confuse the optimization process and disturb the convergence. In this paper, we propose a Heaviside projection based topology optimization method with a scalar function that is filtered by a Helmholtz type partial differential equation. Therefore, the optimality can be strictly discussed in terms of the KKT condition. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method, a minimum compliance problem is solved.

     View Summary

    Structural optimization methods based on the level set method are a new type of structural optimization method where the outlines of target structures can be implicitly represented using the level set function, and updated by solving the so-called Hamilton-Jacobi equation based on a Eulerian coordinate system. These new methods can allow topological alterations, such as the number of holes, during the optimization process whereas the boundaries of the target structure are clearly defined. However, the re-initialization scheme used when updating the level set function is a critical problem when seeking to obtain appropriately updated outlines of target structures. In this paper, we propose a new structural optimization method based on the level set method using a new geometry-based re-initialization scheme where both the numerical analysis used when solving the equilibrium equations and the updating process of the level set function are performed using the Finite Element Method. The stiffness maximization, eigenfrequency maximization, and eigenfrequency matching problems are considered as optimization problems. Several design examples are presented to confirm the usefulness of the proposed method. Copyright (C) 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    This paper deals with a new topology optimization method based on the level set method. In the proposed method, the discretized signed distance function, a kind of level set function, is used as the design variables, and these are then updated using their sensitivities. The signed distance characteristic of the design variables are maintained by performing a re-initialization at every update during the iterated optimization procedure. In this paper, a minimum mean compliance problem and a compliant mechanism design problem are formulated based on the level set method. In the formulations of these design problems, a perimeter constraint is imposed to overcome the ill-posedness of the structural optimization problem. The sensitivity analysis for the above structural optimization problems is conducted based on the adjoint variable method. The augmented Lagrangian method is incorporated to deal with multiple constraints. Finally, several numerical examples that include multiple constraints are provided to confirm the validity of the method, and it is shown that appropriate optimal structures are obtained.

    This paper deals with a new topology optimization method based on the level set method that incorporates the augmented Lagrangian method. In previously proposed level set based structural optimization methods, dealing with multiple constraints has been problematic yet this is typically required for real-world design problems. Incorporating the augmented Lagrangian method in the structural optimization method proposed here enables the handling of multiple constraints. The level set function is discretized using finite elements and updated based on the design sensitivity of the augmented Lagrangian with respect to the discretized level set function. In this paper, the newly proposed structural optimization method is applied to the minimum compliance problem and a compliant mechanism design problem. In the formulations of these problems, a perimeter constraint is imposed to overcome the ill-posedness of the level set method-based structural optimization. Some numerical examples that include multiple constraints are provided to confirm the validity of the method, and we show that appropriate optimal structures are obtained.

     View Summary

    This paper presents a novel design methodology for optimum structural design of magnetic actuators using a level set based topology optimization method where the level set method can represent the precise boundary shape of a structure and also deal with complex topological changes during the optimization process. The distribution of ferromagnetic material is represented by introducing a level set function into the definition of the magnetic reluctivity. The optimization problem is defined to obtain optimal configurations that maximize the magnetic energy of actuators under a minimum bound of total volume. The movement of the implicit moving boundaries of the structure is driven by a transformation of design sensitivities of the objective and the constraints into speed functions that govern the level set propagation. The proposed method is applied to the structural design of magnetic actuators, and is confirmed to be useful for achieving optimal configurations that deliver higher performance and lighter weight designs.

  • 2504 A method of generating high quality zero-level boundary tracking meshes for grayscale-free topology optimization

     View Summary

    Topology optimization is one approach of structural optimization, where various and complex shape can be represented. Because of its degree of freedom, topology optimization has potential to yield superior designs compared with sizing and shape optimizations. However, grayscale elements are often yielded, especially, in density based topology optimization methods; they influenc negatively on design problems where Dirichlet boundary conditions are imposed on the design boundary. To achieve grayscale-free topology optimization, we proposed a boundary tracking type level-set topology optimization method for three-dimensional problem in previous studies. However, the three-dimensional zero-level boundary tracking mesh often contains extremely-low quality elements, and these elements influenc negatively on finit element computation. To avoid this problem, we need a new algorithm to generate the high quality zero-level boundary tracking mesh. In this study, we propose a new mesh generation method for high quality zero-level boundary tracking mesh.

  • 3503 Optimal vibration-proof design of reactor core based on coupled analysis of magnetics and harmonic response

     View Summary

    This paper proposes optimal vibration-proof design of reactor core based on coupled analysis of magnetics and harmonic response. A reactor is a part of the in-vehicle DC-DC converter to boost the electric voltage, and it is composed of cores, coils, and so on. Because of electromagnetic and harmonic response characteristics of the reactor, the reactor core vibrates when the reactor core is in use, and as a result, noises are generated. To reduce these noises, a topology optimization method for reactor core design is proposed in this paper. Here, the main difficulty is to compute the electromagnetic force appropriately. Roughly speaking, standard topology optimization methods, such as density based methods, are not suitable to compute the electromagnetic force because grayscale elements smear out the structural boundary in which the electromagnetic force is imposed. Therefore, in this paper, boundary tracking type level-set based topology optimization is used where grayscale elements can be suppressed completely. Thanks to this grayscale-free topology optimization, the coupled analysis of magnetics and harmonic response is successfully performed, and as a result, topology optimization of the reactor core for reducing the noises is realized.

     View Summary

    This paper proposes a topology optimization method for high power motors, which is used in hybrid electric vehicles. The Permanent Magnet Synchronous motor (PMSM) is often used in hybrid electric vehicles, and its performances directly affect to performances of hybrid electric vehicles. Therefore, it is valuable to research topology optimization of PMSM. Although there are a few research papers discussing topology optimization of PMSM, these researches consider only torque performances. However, we consider that mechanical stiffness to hold permanent magnets should be also considered. If we consider only torque performances and ignore the mechanical stiffness, it will be possible to yield invalid optimal design which is meaningless in structural engineering viewpoints. In this paper, therefore, we propose a topology optimization method for PMSM, in which both torque and mechanical stiffness are maximized. In the proposed method, material distribution of the laminated electrical steel sheet of the rotor is optimized on the basis of the density method. The usefulness of the proposed method is demonstrated using some numerical examples.

     View Summary

    In general, level-set based topology optimization is considered as a different structural optimization approach from density based topology optimization, because these approaches have different theoretical backbone. However, with the advancement of the research on these approaches, some optimization cases appear in which optimization behaviors of these approaches seem to be very similar. Therefore, in this workshop lecture, I would like to discuss essential different and common points between these approaches.

  • 1107 Level-set based structural optimization considering minimum length constraint

    MORIKAWA Yohei, YAMASAKI Shintaro, FUJITA Kikuo

      2014 ( 24 ) "1107 - 1"-"1107-10"  2014.09

     View Summary

    This paper proposes a level-set based structural optimization method considering the minimum length constraint. The minimum length constraint should be considered in an engineering view point, because extreme thin parts are not preferable when processing structures. In the proposed level-set based method, the minimum length of the target structure can be easily computed by utilizing the characteristic of the signed distance function, although it is difficult in standard topology optimization methods. Furthermore, the modification method for the violation of the minimum length constraint can be easily implemented by the characteristic the signed distance function. Among many application fields for the proposed method, we now focus on a complaint mechanism design problem. Since thin hinge parts are appeared in normal compliant mechanisms, it is expected that unique designs for compliant mechanisms are obtained by constraining the minimum length. For this purpose, we develop a new level-set based structural optimization method for the compliant mechanism design problem where the minimum length is constrained. The usefulness of the proposed method is demonstrated by some numerical examples.

  • 1106 Grayscale-free topology optimization using the level-set method and zero-level boundary tracking mesh for the three-dimensional problem

    YAMANAKA Seiichiro, YAMASAKI Shintaro, FUJITA Kikuo

      2014 ( 24 ) "1106 - 1"-"1106-9"  2014.09

     View Summary

    Topology optimization is one approach of structural optimization, where various and complex shape can be represented. Because of its degree of freedom, topology optimization has potential to yield superior designs compared with sizing and shape optimizations. However, grayscale elements are often yielded, especially, in density based topology optimization methods; they influence negatively on design problems where Dirichlet boundary conditions are imposed on design boundary. To achieve grayscale-free topology optimization, we proposed to use the level-set method and the zero-level boundary tracking mesh in previous studies. The zero-level boundary tracking mesh is a conformed mesh to the zero iso-contour of the level-set function and it is generated from the Eulerian mesh. In our previous studies, only the two-dimensional problem were targeted. In this study, we propose a new mesh generation method for the three-dimensional zero-level boundary tracking mesh and construct a grayscale-free topology optimization method for three-dimensional problem.

     View Summary

    This paper proposes a new level-set based topology optimization method incorporating a boundary tracking mesh generation method and non-linear programming. Since the mesh generation method provides a mesh conforming to the structural boundary at every optimization iteration, grayscale elements are completely eliminated during optimization. On the other hand, non-linear programming is widely used for efficiently updating the design variables in conventional topology optimization techniques such as homogenization and density based topology optimization. By incorporating these methods, we configure a new topology optimization method for virtually realizing completely grayscale-free, efficient topology optimization. In this paper, we first develop the mathematical formulation for obtaining sensitivity information on level-set based topology optimization problems and then implement a boundary tracking type level-set topology optimization method with the sequential linear programming (SLP) for designing compliant mechanisms. Further, we apply it to a numerical example for confirming the advantages of the proposed method and framework. Even with SLP, which is a most simple scheme of non-linear programming, the result demonstrate the relevance and promise of the proposed framework as a new class of grayscale-free topology optimization.

  • 2303 Compliant mechanism design using a level set-based topology optimization method incorporated with the ALE method

    Yamasaki Shintaro, Kawamoto Atsushi, Nomura Tsuyoshi

      2011 ( 21 ) 302 - 306  2011.10

     View Summary

    Recently, many level set-based topology optimization methods have been proposed. Among them, our previously proposed level set-based topology optimization method has an advantage of eliminating grayscale elements because of incorporating the arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian method. In this paper, we apply the previously proposed method to a compliant mechanism design problem. Since grayscale elements are completely eliminated, there is no ambiguity of the optimized structure in the engineering sense. This characteristic is very important in compliant mechanism design because compliant mechanisms usually have thin hinge parts. We demonstrate the usefulness of the proposed method using a numerical example.

    IEICE technical report   109 ( 304 ) 55 - 60  2009.11

     View Summary

    Recently, the metamaterials are gaining attention and are investigated due to their specific characteristics which the conventional materials do not have, such as negative refraction index. However, it is sometimes difficult to design metamaterials based on experience and theoretical consideration. Especially, the relationship between their electromagnetic characteristics and their configuration is often vague. Therefore, a mathematical structural design methodology of metamaterials may be useful for expanding engineering application of metamaterials in industry. In this report, a new level set based topology optimization method are constructed for designing left-handed dielectric metamaterials that consist of a waveguide and periodically located dielectric-resonators.
