Abstract:
The optimization of manufacturable extremal elastic materials can be carried out via topology optimization using the homogenization method. We combine here a standard density-based inverse homogenization technique with an anisotropic mesh adaptation procedure in the context of a finite element discretization. In this way, the optimized layouts are intrinsically smooth and ready to be manufactured.
