Abstract

This paper presents a level set topology optimization method for stress-based structural design problems. Herein, a new sensitivity analysis for a p-norm stress measure function is developed and a level set topology optimization method is used. The methodology is applied to optimize a benchmark L-beam problem with and without holes in the starting design.
