Applications of topology in automobile engineering
Topology is a branch of Geometry concerned with the properties remain unchanged when the figure is deformed. Topology is used in automobile engineering, computer science engineering and other fields. The significance of topology is given in the following pages which will help to develop light weight components which are used in manufacturing two wheeler carts etc, the result is we get better automobile fuel efficiency. This in turn results to energy conservation and global environmental preservation. In industries several attempts are made to produce light weight designs. In order to manufacture light weight component our first step is to decrease the weights of hub bearing. Many companies have succeeded to reduce the weights of various products. By applying shape optimization techniques, many have dramatically succeeded in reducing weights.
Our main objective is to reduce the weight of a hub-bearing of a car. To achieve this target we make use of topological optimization technique as well as shape optimization technique.
Keywords: Shape optimization, contractible, decomposition, quotient topology
