An Integrated Optimization System for ANSYS Workbench Based on ACT

From 2012 Automotive Simulation World Congress: Nonparametric structural optimization software coupled with commercial FEA solvers offers many benefits. FE-Design has integrated its advanced structural optimization software with ANSYS Workbench, using the ANSYS Application Customization Toolkit. Topology optimization software automatically generates new design proposals for structures within a defined design space. Material is removed from low-stress areas and retained in areas with higher stress. Nonlinear analysis, including large deformations, material plasticity and contact, is supported.
