Multi-Material Topology Optimization Publication!

A big congratulations to SMSD alumnus, Dr. Li and Dr. Kim for their newest journal paper publication in Automotive Engineering.  Dr. Li and Dr. Kim developed algorithms for multi-material topology optimization considering compliance minimization problems for automotive applications.  Be sure to check out the latest issue of Automotive Engineering for a great read of the paper.

Expanding Research Suite with GM Canada!

Dr. Kim and SMSD are thrilled to announce that the current collaboration with General Motors Canada will be expanding into a suite of new research topics.  Look forward to new focus in topics including design optimization, topology optimization, lightweight design, multi-material design, large-scale optimization, and parts integration over the coming years of the research collaboration.

New Research in Metal Coated Polymers!

SMSD and Dr. Kim are excited to announce a new research collaboration with General Dynamics!  Expanding from a previous research collaboration with General Dynamics investigating the analysis of metal coated polymers; SMSD will now be working towards “Multi-physics Modeling and Topology Optimization for Metal Coated Polymer Structures”.  We look forward to the revelations that will come from this collaboration.

Expanded Research Collaboration with Magna Powertrain!

Congratulations to Dr. Kim, Magna Powertrain, and SMSD for their recently expanded research collaboration in ultra-high strength steels.  The new venture will explore “Automotive Weight Reduction through Nonlinear Finite Element Modeling, Fatigue Analysis, and Optimization of Hot Stamped Ultra-High Strength Steels”.  Look forward to exciting publications in the future.

Journal Paper Publication

Congratulations to Jon Wong, Luke Ryan, and Dr. Kim for their publication in Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization.  Look for “Design optimization of aircraft landing gear assembly under dynamic loading” in the latest issue.
