    Abstract : This thesis considers applications of gradient-based optimization algorithms to the design and control of some mechanics systems. The material distribution approach to topology optimization is applied to design two different acoustic devices, a reactive muffler and an acoustic horn, and optimization is used to control a ball pitching robot.

    Author : Tobias Jonsson; Mats G. Larson; Karl Larsson; Johan Hoffman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cut finite element method; isogeometric analysis; Nitsche s method; a priori error estimation; parametric geometry; interface problem; surface CAD;

    Abstract : Partial differential equations (PDE) on surfaces appear in a variety of applications, such as image processing, modeling of lubrication, fluid flows, diffusion, and transport of surfactants.  In some applications, surfaces are drawn and modeled by using CAD software, giving a very precise patchwise parametric description of the surface.
