    • Dipartimento di Ingegneria Meccanica e Aerospaziale2013EuropeanTechnologyConference Aim of the bridge– Fix the prosthesis attached to the mandibulaIntroduction
    • Dipartimento di Ingegneria Meccanica e Aerospaziale2013EuropeanTechnologyConferenceIntroductionMandibula model(metal) bridgeArtificial gingiva
    • Dipartimento di Ingegneria Meccanica e Aerospaziale2013EuropeanTechnologyConferenceIntroduction Aim of the project– The problem:•excessive heigth and weight of theprostheses = patient’s discomfort– The (possible) solution:•To lighten the bridge by– Using lightweight materials– Applying optimization
    • Dipartimento di Ingegneria Meccanica e Aerospaziale2013EuropeanTechnologyConference Parametric optimization– The shape is given, parameters like thickness, are changedto obtain the objective Shape optimization– The shape is changed to obtain the optimization Topological optimization– Only a volumetric constraint is givenleaving the optimization algorithmfree to find the optimal solutionby removing useless materialOptimization methodologies
    • Dipartimento di Ingegneria Meccanica e Aerospaziale2013EuropeanTechnologyConference Minimum bridge width Fixation points– Usually 4 to 6depending on thepatient Material Golden alloy Chromium/cobalt alloy Titanium alloys CompositesTopological Optimization: problem definition?

    • Dipartimento di Ingegneria Meccanica e Aerospaziale2013EuropeanTechnologyConferenceConclusions The topological optimization method implemented in OPTISTRUCT wasefficiently applied to the improvement of a dental surgery prosthesis The objective was to reduce the volume and weight of a dental bridge,usually a massive metal (gold or titanium) structure The biggest problem is related to the loading mode: few and incompleteinformation are available, the different loading modes are only known asrough estimates Another difficulty is related to the variability of the problem: each patientis a single different case, and should be treated as an individualoptimization problem Despite the difficulty a reduction of 60% in weight and volume wasachieved: a verification by experimental tests (on a real patient) is beingcarried out.
