Abstract
The work provides an exhaustive comparison of some representative families of topology optimization methods for 3D structural optimization, such as the Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization (SIMP), the Level-set, the Bidirectional Evolutionary Structural Optimization (BESO), and the Variational Topology Optimization (VARTOP) methods. The main diferences and similarities of these approaches are then highlighted from an algorithmic standpoint. The comparison is carried out via the study of a ...
