Performance-Based Optimization: A Review

Performance-Based Optimization: A Review The performance-based optimization (PBO) method has recently been developed for topology design of continuum structures with stress, displacement and mean compliance constraints. The PBO method incorporates the finite element analysis, modern structural optimization theory and performance-based design concepts into a single scheme to automatically generate optimal designs of continuum structures. Performance indices are used to monitor the performance optimization history of topologies while performance-based optimality criteria are employed to identify the optimum from the optimization process. The performance characteristics of a structure in an optimization process are fully captured. The PBO technique allows the designer to tailor the design to a specific performance level required by the owner. This paper reviews the state-of-the-art development of automated performance-based optimal design techniques for topology design of continuum structures. Several practical design examples are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness and validity of the PBO technology as an advanced design tool. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Advances in Structural Engineering SAGE

Abstract

The performance-based optimization (PBO) method has recently been developed for topology design of continuum structures with stress, displacement and mean compliance constraints. The PBO method incorporates the finite element analysis, modern structural optimization theory and performance-based design concepts into a single scheme to automatically generate optimal designs of continuum structures. Performance indices are used to monitor the performance optimization history of topologies while performance-based optimality criteria are employed to identify the optimum from the optimization process. The performance characteristics of a structure in an optimization process are fully captured. The PBO technique allows the designer to tailor the design to a specific performance level required by the owner. This paper reviews the state-of-the-art development of automated performance-based optimal design techniques for topology design of continuum structures. Several practical design examples are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness and validity of the PBO technology as an advanced design tool.
