Topology and non-parametric Optimization

The Tosca optimization suite provides dedicated fast and powerful structural and flow optimization solutions based on finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations.

Structure Optimization delivers powerful optimization solutions for design of lightweight, stiff, and durable parts and assemblies within shorter development cycles to maximize performance, minimize material and weight, and discover new design possibilities. Tosca Structure offers functionalities for topology, shape, bead and sizing optimization.

Fluid Optimization enables topology optimization-driven design concepts for fluid flow systems and components. Use its capabilities to create innovative design ideas automatically for a defined flow task and available package space. Fluid Optimization’s unique technology helps you achieve the highest flow performance, quality and eco-efficiency.

Engineers have to develop innovative products in the shortest development time possible. Lightweight design, safety, comfort, performance, efficiency, and durability are some of the manifold requirements that have to be considered.

Design Concepts in a Virtual Product Development

The product development costs are mainly determined in the early concept phase. The automatic generation of optimized design proposals will reduce the number of product development cycles and the number of physical prototypes. The product performance is increased and the development costs are significantly reduced. Starting with the definition of the maximum allowed design space, Tosca Optimization helps you to find the design that fits the design space and considers all product requirements.

Simulation-Driven Design Improvement

Existing designs often only need small changes to improve the overall product performance. Using Tosca Structure’s optimization methods the relevant product requirements can be taken into account. Design improvements are realized in a shorter development time.
