This chapter presents parameterization and geometrical issues. This is also one of key points for an efficient OSD platform. It describes different strategies for shape deformation within and without (level set and CAD-Free) computer aided design data structures during optimization. It discusses mesh deformation and remeshing. It discusses the pros and the cons of injection/suction boundary conditions equivalent to moving geometries when the motion is small. Some strategies to couple mesh adaptation and the shape optimization loop are presented. The aim is to obtain a multi-grid effect and improve convergence.

Keywords: parameterization; level set; CAD-Free; remeshing; equivalent boundary conditions
