- As the parametric level set method (PLSM) can provide the clear structural boundary description and the ANSYS software has a strong capability of finite element analysis, structural topology optimization based on PLSM under the environment of ANSYS secondary development is conducted in this paper. The finite element analysis programs and structural topology optimization based on PLSM are written by APDL and UPFs, respectively. This approach based on ANSYS secondary development can expand the practical applications of structural topology optimization. Typical 2D and 3D examples shown in this paper are used to verify the feasibility and applicability of the adopted method, which can also provide an important guidance to achieve structural topology optimization under the environment of ANSYS secondary development.
