TOSCA Structure - Optimize with Ansys, Abaqus, or Nastran


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. 

Design space of a wishbone
Meshing and topology optimization
Smoothed result, remeshing and load transfer
Validation result
Stress reduction through subsequent shape optimization
Redesigned wishbone
Your Benefit:
  • Fast return-on-invest through use of existing simulation technology and models
  • Performance improvement through automated layout process and closed process
  • Innovative, directly producible, robust product proposals through exact consideration of realistic requirements
  • Highest result quality and reliability due to integration of the best available solvers
  • Avoidance of model abstraction through usability of all solvable models in the optimization
  • Shorter development times through application of the optimization in a very early stage of the product development cycle
