Nonlinear Response Optimization Applied to Real-World Use Cases

From Warren Dias Business Development Manager, OptiStruct

When we talk of nonlinear response optimization – or any finite element based optimization for that matter – there are two components to it: the solver technology and the optimization technology. Let’s start by briefly talking about the solver technology that’s available with HyperWorks. As you can see in Figure 1, it’s a very broad offering covering structural analysis, highly nonlinear analyses like crash and safety, thermal and CFD technology, systems and MBD simulations and last but not least, manufacturing simulation. Such a comprehensive offering is required in order to capture all the physics that our designs are subject to, not just as individual solutions but also as integrated and coupled solutions providing an environment for multiphysics analysis. Note that this integration can be at multiple levels depending on the physics needed to be captured.
