Recently, various optimization methods are being used in the design process in order to find the optimized form of products under different given conditions. The use of topology optimization has enabled engineer designers and industrialists to achieve lighter-weight products in a cost effective way and at a less time consuming processes without losing their intended design purposes. In this study, topology optimization using Autodesk Inventor Software is applied to a component of a front end telescopic hydraulic cylinder with an objective of reducing the mass by at least 30% of the original weight while satisfying the pressure constraints of 18 MPa. Furthermore, sketches are drawn based on the forms derived from topology optimization and the final design is generated into CAD. Finally, finite element analysis is done upon the final model in order to conduct the durability analysis. The results show that the model of the component obtained with topology analysis has been reduced by 30.77% of the original weight while ensuring normal operation under the given constraints.
