About this book (from the Springer web-site):
The topology optimization method solves the basic engineering problem of distributing a limited amount of material in a design space. The first edition of this book (M.P.Bendsøe: Optimization of Structural Topology, Shape and Material. Springer Verlag, Berlin Heidelberg, 1995) has become the standard text on optimal design, which is concerned with the optimization of structural topology, shape and material. This edition has been substantially revised and updated to reflect progress made in modelling and computational procedures. It also encompasses a comprehensive and unified description of the state of the art of the so-called material distribution method, based on the use of mathematical programming and finite elements. Applications treated include not only structures but also MEMS and materials.
