CAD-Based Shape Optimization Using a Meshfree Method
: A shape design sensitivity analysis and optimization procedure is proposed using a meshfree method. A CAD tool connection is established to facilitate the seamless integration of structural modeling, simulation, and design optimization. A new CAD-based method for design velocity computation is proposed, applicable to both the meshfree method and the finite element method. A shape design variable can be chosen among the geometric parameters defined in the CAD model in order to support a concurrent engineering environment. A new CAD-based method for updating the discrete model is proposed, such that the meshfree model is automatically updated in a continuous and consistent way during design optimization. The proposed method is applied to 2D and 3D linear elastic problems, as well as to a large deformation hyperelastic problem. Key Words: CAD-based design, design sensitivity analysis, design optimization, meshfree method.
