Taking the Metal Out of the Pedal - Article - ANSYS Advantage - V12 I3

Traditional optimization methods are limited in the weight savings that can be achieved; they change dimensions but not the overall shape of the part. Topology optimization, on the other hand, redesigns a part to minimize its weight while meeting loading and other requirements specified by design engineers. KSR International used this new approach to reduce the weight of an automotive brake pedal by 21 percent and decreases structural optimization time from 7 to 2 days.
