While the finite element method (FEM) has now reached full maturity both in academy and industry, its use in optimization pipelines remains either computationally intensive or cumbersome. In particular, currently used optimization schemes leveraging FEM still require the choice of dedicated optimization algorithms for a specific design problem, and a “black box” approach to FEM‐based optimization remains elusive. To this end, we propose here an integrated finite element‐soft computing method,...Expand abstract
