Special Session Call for Papers:
Special Session: CC2015-14
Topology Optimization with Constraints against Structural Failure
Session Aims and Scope
This Special Session aims at collecting contributions on fundamental structural topology optimization considering constraints against structural failure in statics and dynamics. Papers on constrained formulations for the optimization of isotropic and composite materials to fulfill prescription on strength, fatigue and other stress-based failure criteria are particularly welcome, along with contributions on methods conceived for multiphysics systems. In-depth relevant research articles, review articles and short communications for conventional topology optimization methods will be considered as well. We hope to invite researchers from all around the world to discuss lessons learnt from the analysis, synthesis and application of topologically optimized layouts when failure constraints are a crucial issue to be dealt with.
For specific questions regarding the scope of this session please contact the organisers:
  • Professor G.H. Yoon, Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea, (ghy AT
  • Dr M. Bruggi, Polytechnic of Milan, Italy, (matteo.bruggi AT

Please note that papers that are found to fall outside the scope of this session may be considered for other sessions.
