Introduction to Part II Shape and Topology Optimization

  • Helmut HarbrechtEmail author
Part of the International Series of Numerical Mathematics book series (ISNM, volume 165)


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.
