Abstract

The incremental sensitivity analysis associated with variation of structure material parameters, shape or topology variation is generally discussed by analyzing the evolution of potential and complementary energies, or arbitrary functionals of state fields. The concept of configuration and sensitivity generalized forces is used in presenting the sensitivity derivatives. The general reciprocity relations are derived for the case of potential or complementary energy variations. The topology variations in bar structures related to introduction of elements and introduction of inclusions and voids in plates are discussed, and the sensitivity forces are derived.
