This poster describes a project to asses the viablilty of using structural topology optimisation to create a new exoskeleton for lattice self-supported towers.​

Research funded by: 2015/16 MSc Research Grant
Poster: Mr Andreas Nicolaou
Supervisor: Dr Konstantinos Tsavdaridis
University: University of Leeds 

Summary:

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.
