Title:
Topology Optimization for Crashworthiness of Thin-walled Structures 
Abstract:
Although topology optimization is well established for linear cases, there are only a few methods available for crashworthiness. This is due to the high non-linearity of the problem and the difficulty to define clear objectives and constraints. In addition, it is difficult to derive methods, which are appropriate for thin-walled structures, the main structural type used for vehicular structures in automotive and aerospace industry.
