CEE 578 - Structural Design Optimization
Last offered Fall 2023
Covers the fundamental theory, classic numerical methods, modern techniques, and practical applications of structural optimization to engineering design problems, such as large-scale civil structures and mechanical systems. We will also introduce the modern topology optimization methods together with the application to material and structural systems. Students will also be introduced with rapid prototyping and 3D printing techniques. Also features a project, which will use those state-of-the-art techniques and methods, as well as practical design optimization problems from various engineering industries. Course Information: 4 graduate hours. No professional credit. Prerequisite: CEE 470.
