This project aimed to asses the viablilty of using structural topology optimization to create a new exoskeleton for lattice self-supported towers.

Research undertaken in this project analyses the improved structural characteristics, high aesthetic value and functional utility acheived through structural topology optimization (STO). Through STO, SIMP (Solid Isotropic Material with Penalisation) algorithms can produce skeleton structures or members with improved weight and stiffness characteristics as well as high aesthetic value.
