TOSCA (NON-PARAMETRIC TOPOLOGY OPTIMIZATION)
In today’s changing engineering world, it is crucial to adapt the product development process to meet these growing demands. Modeling and simulation already plays an important role to help understand and validate potential designs within the development process. However, in order
to realize continuing product improvements and get innovative, sustainable design concepts within a shorter development cycle, the consequent use of simulation methods along with structural optimization technology offers a better approach. When companies bring traditional stress analysis and structural optimization solutions together, market entry for components and products is realized more rapidly and efficiently.
As leading technologies for structural optimization and flow optimization, both Tosca Structure and Tosca Fluid offer efficient optimization based on industry standard FEA (Abaqus, ANSYS, MSC Nastran) and CFD software (STAR-CCM+ and ANSYS Fluent). The Tosca optimization suite enables engineers to take full advantage of any improvement potential while leveraging advanced simulation capabilities. It creates optimized design concepts to achieve the highest performance, quality, and eco-efficiency in a shorter development time.
Tosca Structure is the market leading technology for structural optimization based on industry standard FEA packages (Abaqus, ANSYS, MSC Nastran). It allows for rapid and reliable design of lightweight, rigid and durable components and systems. Using topology optimization with Tosca Structure.topology you obtain optimal design proposals already during design concept. Specific detail improvements through shape and bead optimization respectively (with Tosca Structure.shape and Tosca Structure.bead respectively) make your designs ready for production. With Tosca Structure.sizing you find optimized sheet thicknesses even for large scale applications with up to millions of design variables. The result are designs with optimum relation between weight, stiffness and dynamic behavior.
Tosca Fluid features unique design and non-parametric fluid flow topology optimization technology for components and systems. Utilize full design flexibility and create an innovative, optimized design concept for defined design spaces and flow tasks. No initial design is necessary. Only one solver run is needed using industry-standard CFD solvers.
