Optimisation de formes de coques minces pour des géométries complexes.

Abstract : During the design process, optimizationof shapes offers manufacturers solutions for improvingproducts performances. In particular, thin shellstructures that represent about 70 % of a vehicle, area concern in the automotive industry. Most optimizationmethods for surface structures have limitationsand require expertise at every level of the optimizationprocedure.The aim of this thesis is to propose a new strategyfor the shape optimization of thin shell structures.The approach presented rely on using the Koiter’sshell model based on an isogeometric analysis. Thismethod allows for simulations on the exact geometryby defining the shape using CAD patches. Selectedoptimization variables are the control points used tocontrol the shape of the CAD patches. Variations ofthese points allows to scan a wide design space withfew parameters. The definition of patchs also enablesto find a gradient with respect to the shape for theoptimization by using the adjoint state method.This method was applied to mechanical criteria fromthe Renault design offices. Optimization results for acompliance criterion are presented. The definition andimplementation of vibro-acoustic criteria are discussedat the end of this thesis. The results demonstratethe interest of the method. However, many developmentswill be needed before being able to apply it inthe industry.
