Topology Optimization of Diffusive Transport Problems
This lecture covers topology optimization methods for solving diffusive transport problems, in particular heat conduction in solids. The importance of understanding the underlying physical phenomena to properly define the optimization problem is emphasized. Numerical issues arising from large gradients in the diffusion coefficients along with remedies for mitigating theses problems will be discussed.
