This project concerns topology optimization, a method for automatic design of mechanical structures based on non-linear optimization and finite element analysis. Topology optimization is very computationally demanding since of the order of 100s-1000s of FE analysis are required to obtain good results, thus necessitating the use of high-performance computers. The work in the proposed project is intended as part of the VR-project Mathematical games for worst-case oriented robust topology optimization, Dnr 2019-04615.
