Extensive numerical methods for computing design sensitivity are included in the text for practical application and software development. The numerical method allows integration of CAD-FEA-DSA software tools, so that design optimization can be carried out using CAD geometric models instead of FEA models. This capability allows integration of CAD-CAE-CAM so that optimized designs can be manufactured effectively.After the state problem is converged at the current load step, the design sensitivity equation is solved using the factorized ... In the final section of this chapter, the design sensitivity formulation for the transient dynamic problem with explicit timeanbsp;...
