Linear static response structural response has been developed quite well by using the finite element method for linear static analysis. However, development is extremely slow for structural optimization where a nonlinear static analysis technique is required. Optimization methods using equivalent static loads (ESLs) have been proposed to solve various structural optimization disciplines. The disciplines include linear dynamic response optimization, structural optimization for multi-body dynamic systems, structural optimization for flexible multi- body dynamic systems, nonlinear static response optimization and nonlinear dynamic response optimization. The ESL is defined as the static load that generates the same displacement field by an analysis which is not linear static. An analysis that is not linear static is carried out to evaluate the displacement field. ESLs are evaluated from the displacement field, linear static response optimization is performed by using the ESLs, and the design is updated. This process proceeds in a cyclic manner. The method is named as Equivalent Static Loads method for nonlinear static response Structural Optimization (ESLSO or ESLM).
The contents of ESLM have been already introduced in DUT. In this seminar, some recent developments for nonlinear dynamic response optimization are demonstrated. Nonlinear dynamic response analysis is carried out by a commercial system such as LS/DYNA, the ESLs are generated and linear static optimization is performed by a commercial optimization system. Application of ESLM to topology optimization needs many small techniques and there are explained in detail. Practical applications of ESLM are introduced with examples from the industries. Size and shape optimizations as well as topology optimization are demonstrated by using examples. The interface module for the software systems is developed. The method is being installed in OptiStruct and the installation status of the method is shown and the future direction of the method is discussed.
