The isogeometric shape design sensitivity analysis (DSA) includes the desirable features; easy design parameterization and accurate shape sensitivity embedding the higher-order geometric information of curvature and normal vector. Due to the non-interpolatory property of NURBS basis, however, the imposition of essential boundary condition is not so straightforward in the isogeometric method. Taking advantages of geometrically exact property, an isogeometric DSA method is developed applying a mixed transformation to handle the boundary condition. A set of control point and NURBS basis function is added using the h-refinement and Newton iterations to precisely locate the control point to impose the boundary condition. In spite of additional transformation, its computation cost is comparable to the original one with penalty approach since the obtained Kronecker delta property enables to reduce the size of system matrix. Through demonstrative numerical examples, the effectiveness, accuracy, and computing cost of the developed DSA method are discussed.
Ever since the framework of isogeometric analysis method was established by Hughes et al. , the isogeometric method that employs the same basis functions as used in a CAD model has shown many advantages over standard finite element methods and rapidly widened its applications such as structural vibrations , fluid–structure interactions , isogeometric sensitivity analyses enhanced by T-splines , turbulent flow simulations , and isogeometric shell analyses . The isogeometric method has a major feature such as the CAD based parameterization of field variables in an isoparametric manner and thus requires no geometric parameterization during refinement processes, which are extensively discussed by Cottrell et al.  as the analogues of h-, p-, and hp-refinements in standard finite element methods. In the perspective of analysis, the non uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) basis function has desirable properties such as the partition of unity, a compact support, and non-negativity. However, it has non-interpolatory property in common with meshfree methods. In general, the isogeometric analysis method can handle almost all sorts of essential boundary conditions as long as they can be described by the NURBS functions. However, in specific cases like pointwise essential boundary conditions that cannot be represented by a NURBS, weak enforcement or any other treatment is required. This is one of the disadvantages in isogeometric and meshfree methods due to the non-interpolating property of basis functions. Several methods have been proposed to impose essential boundary conditions for the meshfree methods. These techniques can be classified in two groups: (1) modification of the weak form; the Lagrange multiplier method, the penalty method, and the Nitsche’s method, and (2) modification of shape functions summarized by Fernandez-Mendez and Huerta . Both methods are applicable for the isogeometric analysis but the latter is more intuitive by applying the modified basis functions directly in the isogeometric analysis. As an application of the modification of basis functions in the isogeometric analysis, Wang and Xuan  used a mixed transformation method originated by Chen and Wang , where the complete separation of interior and boundary nodes is demonstrated, using the NURBS property that the value of interior shape functions vanishes at boundary. In shape optimization problems, the isogeometric approach has shown two significant benefits addressed by Cho and Ha ; (1) the accurate sensitivity of complex geometries including the higher order effects originated from the exact representation of geometry and (2) the vast simplification of design parameterization utilizing the direct variation of CAD geometry. However, the updates of interior control points are still challenging since a CAD system typically includes only boundary information. The movement of internal control points can be related to the changes of boundary control points through an algebraic constraint  and . Recently, Manh et al.  proposed an optimization scheme of the jacobian parameters, to obtain proper the control point updates for interior surface parameterization. However, due to the lack of Kronecker delta property of NURBS basis functions, the application of the DSA method is still limited. In this paper, for a gradient-based design optimization that includes point loading and boundary conditions, a shape DSA method is developed using the mixed transformation method in the isogeometric framework. This paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we briefly summarize the isogeometric analysis method and the treatment of essential boundary conditions. In Section 3, after a brief review of isogeometric shape DSA, the treatment of essential boundary conditions is explained. In Section 4 of numerical examples, the accuracy of isogeometric shape DSA is compared with the finite difference one for the problem having essential boundary conditions. Also, the numerical costs for the mixed transformation are discussed in the isogemetric analysis and the shape DSA. Finally, we draw some conclusions, which could eventually present the superior points of the proposed method in shape design optimization having essential boundary conditions.

In the isogeometric approach, the NURBS basis functions used in the CAD geometric modeling are directly utilized to embed the exact geometry into the computational framework. In this paper, using the mixed transformation method, the transformed isogeometric DSA method is developed. A set of control point and NURBS basis is added using the h-refinement and Newton iterations to precisely locate the control point for the essential boundary conditions. The isogeometric DSA method provides not only superior results to the finite element sensitivity but also comparable results to the isogeometric sensitivity with penalty method since the reduced stiffness matrix available from the response analysis is directly used in the sensitivity analysis. From the response analysis point of view, the transformation of essential boundary enables the direct imposition of boundary conditions to enhance the accuracy in actual solutions. In spite of the numerical costs to construct the transformation matrix, the total cost to perform the transformed isogeometric analysis could be comparable to that of the original isogeometric analysis depending on the number of control points on the essential boundary. From the sensitivity analysis point of view, the domain for the shape sensitivity analysis is discretized in the early stage of geometry definition so that the higher-order geometric information such as normal vector and curvature can be considered exactly.
