Advanced topology optimization for aerospace
Published on October 12, 2021
Dynamic Analysis, Manufacturability & Cost
Topology optimization is an effective generative design tool for weight reduction, but aerospace components often operate under rapid dynamic loads or high-frequency vibrations. Engineers must consider these requirements early in the design phase to ensure structural integrity against fatigue or impact.
In this webinar, the engineers of Cognitive Design Systems (CDS) and nTop demonstrate how to combine topology optimization with bionic design, gyroid lattice structures, and dynamic design analysis to address engineering, manufacturing, and cost requirements.
First, they show you how to rapidly generate design concepts in nTop — for CNC machining or Additive Manufacturing — and prepare them for FE simulation and automated design analysis. Then, they demonstrate how to quickly evaluate the manufacturability and economic feasibility of such advanced designs using Cognitive Additive.
Join this webinar to learn how to:
- Generate lightweight designs for CNC machining or Additive Manufacturing
- Combine topology optimization with latticing to meet static and dynamic requirements
- Evaluate & compare the dynamic performance, manufacturability, and cost of different design alternatives
