Minimum weight Topology optimization subject to unsteady heat equation and space-time pointwise constraints — toward automatic optimal riser design in the shape casting process

The automatic optimal design of feeding system in the shape casting process is considered in the present work. In fact, the goal is to find the optimal position, size, shape and topology of risers in the shape casting process. This problem is formulated as a minimum weight topology optimization problem subjected to a nonlinear transient … Read more
