Key Software Capabilities
- Topology optimization
By applying a stress constraint in Topology Optimization you can generate high-performance part geometry that complies with a predetermined stress threshold, avoiding stress concentrations while minimizing mass or maximizing stiffness.
In this nTop Live, Evan Pilz, Application Engineer at nTop, takes a closer look at the stress constraint for Topology Optimization. He walks you through a basic topology optimization workflow and explains how to reliably generate stress constrained optimization results and how to balance computational time with optimization accuracy.
Watch and learn how to:
- Set up a workflow to perform stress constrained Topology Optimization in nTop
- Avoid stress concentrations in topology optimization solutions
- Balance computation time with optimization accuracy.
