Design and Optimization of Graded Cellular Structures with Triply Periodic Level Surface-Based Topological Shapes
Dawei Li, Ning Dai, Yunlong Tang, Guoying Dong, and Yaoyao Fiona Zhao
Periodic cellular structures with excellent mechanical properties widely exist in nature. Examples include shark skin, bone structure, etc. This research introduces a generative design and optimization method for triply periodic level surface (TPLS)-based functionally graded cellular structures. In the proposed method, the density distribution is controlled so that the TPLS-based cellular structures can achieve better structural or thermal performances without increasing the weight of the structure.

Origami, the ancient art of paper folding, is finding numerous uses in scientific and engineering applications because of the combined advances in mathematics, computer science, and computational geometry. From deployment of solar arrays and antennas to design of robots and modeling of protein folding, origami provides an efficient means of compaction and coordinated motion. Read more...
