This article introduces a novel algorithm in topology optimization of mechanical structures to achieve a desired compliance using the level set method. In contrast with the literature in this area that attempts to minimize the compliance of a structure, the present study concerns with an innovative formulation to reach a desired compliance. It is shown that a more comprehensive technique is required to achieve this goal.
