Phase-field approaches to structural topology optimization.
Preprintreihe der Fakultät Mathematik 6/2010,
The mean compliance minimization in structural topology optimization is solved with the help of a phase field approach. Two steepest descent approaches based on L2- and H-1 gradient flow dynamics are discussed.
The resulting flows are given by Allen-Cahn and Cahn-Hilliard type dynamics coupled to a linear elasticity system. We finally compare numerical results obtained from the two different approaches.
