Structural and Product Design Optimization


nav1

Optimizing a structure or manufactured product refers to a sequence of analyses aimed at reducing the weight or cost of the structure or product while maintaining the functionality of the structure or product, and that meets all Engineering requirements, and that can be manufactured and assembled. This process may include modifications to the structural or product topology, component thicknesses, and material properties.

The optimization process is iterative where the specified design variables are altered, in the course of the optimization process, in a manner that modifies the objective function (structural or product weight or cost) in an advantageous manner.

Analysis Capabilities

Design variables that allow modification of component thicknesses and global shapes
Constraint variables that limit the variation of design modifications
Objective function sets the purpose of the design optimization
Feasible product designs subjected to size and shape constraints
Global and/or local design optimization

Applications

Design of structures and manufactured products to reduce weight while maintaining required structural, functional, and manufacturing characteristics.
Optimization of component thickness and shape based on user defined objective and constraints.
Structural and product design constrained by size, weight, frequency, etc.
Feasible structural and product designs subject to size and shape constraints.
Design of structures and manufactured products for minimum cost, weight, or size.
