Topology Optimization of Hybrid Electric Vehicle Frame Using Multi-Loading Cases Optimization 2008-01-1734

This presentation evaluates the contribution of multi-objective programming scheme for the conceptual design of the Hybrid Electric Vehicle frame's structure using topological optimization. The compromise programming method was applied to describe the statically loaded multicompliance topology optimization. Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization (SIMP) was used as the interpolation scheme to indicate the dependence of material modulus upon regularized element densities. The sequential convex programming approach was applied to solve the optimization problem. The application on the chassis frame was used to demonstrate the characteristics of the presented methodologies based on the commercial software package OptiStruct.
