We consider shape optimization problems subject to elliptic partial differential equations. In the context of the finite element method, the geometry to be optimized is represented by the computational mesh, and the optimization proceeds by repeatedly updating the mesh node positions. It is well known that such a procedure eventually may lead to a deterioration of mesh quality. As a remedy, we propose a restriction in the admissible mesh deformations, inspired by the Hadamard structure theorem. First and second order methods are considered in this setting. Numerical results show that mesh degeneracy can be overcome, avoiding the need for remeshing or other strategies.
