Abstract
Tertiary mirror of thirty meter telescope (TMT) has the tracking and pointing capabilities, and its structure is similar to an alt-az telescope. The cradle serves a similar function to the center block of the track frame, its structure directly affects the performance of the system. M3 prototype as an example, in order to improve stiffness to weight ratio of the cradle, the mathematical model of topology optimization design of the cradle was established and the optimization was performed. Then a spliced truss structure for cradle was designed based on the result of the topology optimization. By using finite element method, the static and dynamic analysis of cradle under different conditions was done according to the working characteristics. The results showed that under the conditions of the gravity vertical along the x, y, z, the maximum deformation of cradle was 0.064mm, 0.015mm, 0.025mm respectively, and the first modal frequency is 74.4Hz. Results showed the structure designed meets the requirement.
