Abstract

This paper deals with the utilization of topology optimization in the design process. Topology optimization is considered the most challenging task in the structural design optimization problems because the general layout of the structure is not known; however, implementing it in the conceptual design stage has proven to reduce the cost and development time. In this paper, the design process is briefly discussed emphasizing the use of topology optimization in the conceptual design stage. Also, the mathematical formulation for topology optimization with material density contours is presented. Furthermore, two industrial case studies, related to off-road mining and construction trucks, are discussed where the use of topology optimization has proven to dramatically improve an existing design and significantly decrease the development time of a new design.
