Research undertaken in this project analyses the improved structural characteristics, high aesthetic value and functional utility acheived through structural topology optimisation (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.
