Abstract

The study addresses the material layout optimization for heterogeneous materials considering non-linear response. In particular two different materials are investigated, namely cellular materials like polymer or metal foams and Fiber Reinforced Composites. The contribution describes all necessary methodical details, such as non-linear material formulations, optimisation building blocks like optimality criteria and sensitivity analyses in the context of non-linear formulations and related algorithmic aspects. Several numerical examples underline the basic concept [1], [2], [3].
