General Description
Short Info
In contrast to the Kreisselmeier-Steinhauser approach this response function only considers one single eigenvalue and the corresponding eigenmode of the eigen dynmaic problem. As therefore the internal weighting becomes needless, this function can be described shortly.
This response function also assumes that the eigenvalue has to be maximized.

A complete test example
Model description
The test example for single eigenvalue optimization is a squared and Navier supported plate. The first four eigenvalues are considered and for each of them an optimization is performed. In the next section we examine the different results.
The following animation illustrates the eigenmodes of the plate.

Documented Results
The results show the expected behaviour. Each solution generates stiffness towards a certain eigenmode. As the modes two and three are symmetric it is not surprising that the design updates are symmetric, too.
