When using the robust topology optimization formulation in the density framework, the minimum size of the solid and void phases must be imposed implicitly through the parameters that define the density filter and the smoothed Heaviside projection. Finding these parameters can be time consuming and cumbersome, hindering a general code implementation of the robust formulation. Motivated by this issue, in this article we provide analytical expressions that explicitly relate the minimum length scale and the parameters that define it. The expressions are validated on a density-based framework. To facilitate the reproduction of results, MATLAB codes are provided. [less ▲]
