Tosca: the topology optimizer
Today’s engineers aspire to develop innovative products in the shortest development time possible. Security, comfort, performance, efficiency, durability, and flexibility are just some of the aspects to take into account.
The Tosca optimization suite enables engineers to take full advantage of any improvement potential while leveraging advanced simulation capabilities. It creates optimized design concepts to achieve the highest performance, quality, and eco-efficiency in a shorter development time.
Tosca Structure for topology, shape, bead & sizing optimization
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 you obtain optimal design proposals already during design concept. Specific detail improvements through shape and bead optimization 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 results are designs with optimum relation between weight, stiffness and dynamic behavior.
Tosca Fluid features unique design and non-parametric fluid flow topology optimization technology for components and systems. Utilize full design flexibility and create an innovative, optimized design concept for defined design spaces and flow tasks. No initial design is necessary. Only one solver run is needed using industry-standard CFD solvers.
The solution will reduce development times through application of the optimization in a very early stage of the product development cycle, will avoid model abstraction through usability of all solvable model features in the optimization, increase the structural performance of designs and reduce the weight of the products.
Power of the Portfolio
Tosca (together with Abaqus, fe-safe and Isight) is included in Extended Packaging, allowing unified access to all solution technologies within the portfolio through a single token pool.
