      A topology optimization method is proposed for design of the layout of channel-cooling tools.An equivalent convective heat transfer model is established considering the characteristic of straight cooling channels.A uniform velocity field is used to mimic the turbulent flow field.The temperature boundary condition on the channel inlet is described by a Robin type boundary condition.A thermo-elastic model is established to describe the thermo-mechanical behavior.A discrete object filter is introduced to get circular topology.A geometric constraint is introduced to solve the mixed-phase problem caused by the filter.The mean temperature and the displacement field uniformity are set as an objective function and a constraint,respectively.A flat top design and a U-shape tool design are optimised to show the feasibility of the present method.Optimized design results show that a clear topology can be achieved.Furthermore the optimized topology satisfies the geometric requirements of the channel radius,the distance between channels and the minimum distance between channels and the tool surface.
