Topic: Truss topology optimization with reused steel elements

Location: Microsoft Teams

Description: Designing with reuse involves many challenges. One of these challenges is the complex design process. In my thesis, I have developed a design tool combining topology optimization with designing with a set of reclaimed elements. The parametric tool can present multiple different designs to the user. Designs with minimal volume, maximum reuse percentage or maximum average unity check could be preferred.
