We have proposed a new topology optimization method, which can adjust the geometrical complexity of optimal configurations, using the level set method and incorporating a fictitious interface energy derived from the phase field method.

First, a topology optimization problem is formulated based on the level set method, and the method of regularizing the optimization problem by introducing fictitious interface energy is explained.

Next, the reaction iffusion equation that updates the level set function is derived and an optimization algorithm is then constructed, which uses the finite element method to solve the equilibrium equations and the reaction iffusion equation when updating the level set function.

Finally, several optimum design examples are shown to confirm the validity and utility of the proposed topology optimization method.
