Boundary control and shape optimization for the robust design of bypass anastomoses under uncertainty

Toni Lassila, Andrea Manzoni, Alfio Quarteroni, Gianluigi Rozza (2013)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique


We review the optimal design of an arterial bypass graft following either a (i) boundary optimal control approach, or a (ii) shape optimization formulation. The main focus is quantifying and treating the uncertainty in the residual flow when the hosting artery is not completely occluded, for which the worst-case in terms of recirculation effects is inferred to correspond to a strong orifice flow through near-complete occlusion.A worst-case optimal control approach is applied to the steady...

Optimal design of cylindrical shells

Peter Nestler, Werner H. Schmidt (2010)

Discussiones Mathematicae, Differential Inclusions, Control and Optimization


The present paper studies an optimization problem of dynamically loaded cylindrical tubes. This is a problem of linear elasticity theory. As we search for the optimal thickness of the tube which minimizes the displacement under forces, this is a problem of shape optimization. The mathematical model is given by a differential equation (ODE and PDE, respectively); the mechanical problem is described as an optimal control problem. We consider both the stationary (time independent) and the...
