Structural Optimization in Multilevel Design

Antonio Caputi, Davide Russo, Caterina Rizzi, University of Bergamo

Abstract. This paper deals with a new methodology based on “multi-level design” approach that foresees the development and integration of computer aided tools to support designers’ work. Multilevel design is not intended here as the relationship between product design, service, system and society but as the design of products taking into account a plurality of design perspectives at different detail levels, from macro to micro. In the following we introduce an overview of some research areas that involve a multilevel approach, such as biomimetic, problem solving and material science, that constituted the basis for the definition of the new design methodology.

Keywords. Structural optimization, topology, multilevel, FBS
