Hey guys, I was wondering if it is possible to setup the following optimization problem. Lets say I have a set of nodes and bar elements. This framework has some loads and boundary conditions. I am not sure if the node position of each node is optimal regarding compliance. I would like to define "shapes" for the nodes where I can set some pertubations e.g. Node x can move in a sphere of radius y. I have not seen this kind of optimization although I think it must be possible from an algorithmic point of view. Any suggestions? Thanks!
