Ausgewählte Kapitel der computerorientierten Mechanik I (14)

Selected Topics in Computational Mechanics I (14)



Structural Optimisation

Modern problems in engineering consider the material and structural behaviour, i.e. structural analysis, as well as inverse problems for an optimal layout of materials and structures, i.e. structural optimisation. The lecture on Structural Optimisation tackles the following topics:

  • Introduction (notation, model problems, applications, research directions)
  • Fundamentals of nonlinear programming (theory and computation)
  • Fundamentals of topology optimisation (theory and computation)
  • Fundamentals of shape optimisation (theory and computation)
  • Overview on techniques for sensitivity analysis


The units devoted to computation are based on Matlab and are integrated into the theoretical and exercise lectures.

Further information will be given on Monday, April 16, 2018, 14:15-15:45 h, Campus Süd, Geschoßbau I, Hörsaal 131.
