Abstract

In this work, a novel convexity-oriented time-dependent reliability-based topology optimization (CTRBTO) framework is investigated with overall consideration of universal uncertainties and time-varying natures in configuration design. For uncertain factors, the initial static ones are quantified by the convex set model and nodal dynamic responses are then expressed by the convex process model, where both the boundary rules and time-dependency properties are revealed by the full-dimensional convex-set collocation theorem. Unlike the original deterministic constraints in topology optimization schemes, a new convex time-dependent reliability (CTR) index is defined to give a reasonable failure judgment of local dynamic stiffness and impel the overall CTRBTO strategy. In addition, the gradient-based iterative algorithm is utilized to guarantee the computational robustness and the CTR-driven design sensitivities are explicitly analyzed by the Lagrange multiplier method. Several numerical examples are used to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method, and numerical results reflect the significance of this study to a certain extent.
