This course will focus on the review of topological optimization output. The setup of topological optimization models will be discussed to provide sufficient output to review. The interpretation of model output with be covered to allow the analyst to make rational engineering recommendations to design or set up a traditional optimization problem.
This course will describe the basics of structural optimization with the focus on multi variable optimization methods. Both classic and finite element methods will be discussed with a focus on Nastran solution 200 optimization of structural models. Real world applications will be solved with templates that will allow easy implementation to the unique problems of the clients.
An introduction to monte-carlo simulation for optimization based in Nastran.
