Supported ANSYS Analysis Systems • Static Structural (Linear and Nonlinear) • Modal • Linear Buckling • Harmonic • Random • Transient Structural • Multiple analysis systems simultaneously Topology Optimization Topology design is to find the optimal distribution of material in a given package space while improving the product performance . Typically topology optimization is used by engineers in the early design stages to generate innovative design proposals. GENESIS provides an extensive family of fabrication constraints such as casting, extrusion, symmetries, etc., that helps the user to...

Freeform Optimization Freeform design is also a special type of shape optimization. The intention is to increase the design freedom with little effort from the user. GSAM will automatically create perturbations for grids on selected surfaces. During optimization process the grid locations are changed to achieve a better design. Optionally the user can apply fabrication requirements such as symmetries, extrusion or grid fraction. Freeform optimization can also be used by automatically linking adjacent grids to reduce computational cost. Sizing Optimization Sizing optimization is to design...

Other VR&D Products GENESIS - Structural Analysis & Optimization DOT - Design Optimization Tools GENESIS is a fully integrated finite element analysis and design optimization software package. Analyses include static, normal modes, direct and modal frequency analysis, heat transfer and system buckling. Design optimization is based on the advanced approximation concepts approach to find an optimum design efficiently and reliably. Actual optimization is performed by the well established DOT and BIGDOT optimizers, also from VR&D. Design capabilities include: topology, shape, sizing,...
