Our powerful finite element analysis capabilities allow us to efficiently optimize designs. Typical optimization goals include minimizing component mass and material or maximizing modal frequencies subject to stress or deflection constraints. Manufacturing and symmetry constraints can be applied to the model to ensure a manufacturable result. Optimization types include topology (pictured), topography (sheet-metal beading), size and shape, composite (core and ply order and thickness, ply orientation), and others.
