摘要In this paper, based on a tangential interpolation function and an adaptively increasing penalty-factor strategy (TIPS), a novel parameterization method with a self-penalization scheme aimed for the topology optimization of metallic antenna design is proposed. The topology description is based on the material distribution approach. The proposed tangential interpolation function aims to associate the material resistance with design variables, in which the material resistance is expressed in the arctangent scale and the arctangent resistance is interpolated with the design variables using the rational approximation of material properties. During the optimization process, a strategy with an adaptively increasing penalty factor is used to eliminate the remaining gray scale elements, as illustrated in examples, in the topology optimization based on the proposed tangential interpolation function. Design results of typical examples express the effectiveness of the proposed TIPS parameterization.
