Introduction to Part II Shape and Topology Optimization
This part contains several results of recent research in shape and topology optimization. It consists of the following three independent sections:
Sergio Conti, Benedikt Geihe, Martin Rumpf, and Rüdiger Schultz combine, in Two-stage stochastic optimization meets two-scale simulation, a two-scale model in elastic shape optimization with a stochastic framework. The microstructured material to be optimized is composed of an elastic material with geometrically simple perforations located on a regular periodic lattice, whose parameters depend on the macroscopic position.
