Free-size optimization is a simulation-driven design technology used to optimize machine structures and parts stamped from tailor-welded blanks, but is most widely used in the design of complex laminate composite components. Learn how free-size optimization works and how it’s applied to improve product design.
Size, Shape, and Free-shape optimization are simulation-driven design technologies used to fine-tune the formation of structural product concepts. Used to find optimal solutions for key product characteristics like cross-sectional thickness and material choice, or to refine areas with high stress concentration, these tools help reduce the risk of product failure. Find out how size, shape, and free-shape optimization can help improve your product design process.
The objective of this demo is to provide insight into the typical modeling steps related to a linear
static analysis of a student racing car subjected to bending-, shear-, and torsion loads.
Please note, that the load cases, geometry of the frame, the dimensions of the 1D element cross
sections, material parameters etc. are just conceptual.
