Compliance Design

With this Java applet you can build an input deck for a topology optimization program running on the webserver. By adding forces, supports, fixed solid and void domains you can solve your own compliance minimization problems. The optimizer is fixed to max 100 iterations using a FEM mesh containing 1000 elements.

Try your own design!

Just construct your own design problem and press 'Submit' button.
