Vishrut Shah Publication!

Vishrut’s paper titled “Material interface control in multi-material topology
optimization using pseudo-cost domain method” was recently published in the International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering! Vishrut’s work involves multi-material topology optimization, and implements a new user-defined joint cost model. This new methodology provides a new tool for multi-material design with consideration of manufacturing costs. Congratulations Vishrut!
