CAE professionals talk about optimization once the development possibility of complicated elements is identified using mathematical optimization procedures. The kick-off point for these process is, for instance, various requirements for light-weight construction alternatives. It is far from merely weight savings which contribute to these scenarios, but also a decrease in material expenses. Additional reasons for carrying out an optimization process consist of minimal installation space or developments to a structure to lessen susceptibility to weak spots or remove them all collectively.
We estimate possible optimization for a design utilizing various numerical procedures. When potential is uncovered, suggestions for upgrades to a component or an assembly group are incorporated into the development process. An offer for a whole new design can be achievable. Our technical engineers operate in close agreement with all sections through all phases of the growth procedure. The element design idea is taken into consideration together with material requirements, performance or boundary circumstances in the manufacturing process.
The strategy to CAE optimization depends on specifications. The kind of procedure selected is relative to the preferred enhancement:
» Topology optimization
» Topography optimization
» Parameter optimization
The starting place for topology optimization is a specified maximum installation space. Topology optimization in an FE model allows our technicians to build a structure, that is capable of all operational problems, for example, loads, tensions, vital frequencies or production limitations. The element manufactured has optimized features, which ascertain stiffness and strength. Such innovations are achievable starting from a young stage in development.
Further calculations enable engineers to analyze the quality of the optimized design, using a service life analysis, for example.
