Development and optimization of a 3D printed unmanned aerial vehicle

The project is focused on topology optimization in the design and construction of an unmanned aerial vehicle (drone or aircraft). The project deals with the structural optimization of a selected component of an unmanned vehicle such as an airframe or a wing of an aircraft. The project aims to introduce students to the practical basics of topology optimization based on the finite element method (FEM) in ANSYS, Autodesk Inventor, or Autodesk Fusion 360. Students will learn the procedures of creating a computational mesh, specifying boundary conditions, defining the objective function, the actual solution, especially by gradient methods, and post-processing for 3D printing. High-level programming languages such as Matlab, GNU Octave, Python or Julia will be used for input data preparation, scripting and post-processing of results. The design activity will be carried out in the CAD system Autodesk Fusion 360. The experimental part of the work may include tests of selected materials for 3D printing (so-called filaments). Within the case study, it is intended to realize the final design using the 3D printing method.
