Tosca: topology optimization

The Tosca optimization suite provides fast and powerful structural and flow optimization solutions based on FEA and CFD simulations. The suite consists of two products: Tosca Structure is for optimized structural designs, and Tosca Fluid provides optimized fluid flow design concepts.

Tosca advantages

Accelerate conceptual design, reduce time-to-market.

Save weight and ensure highest result quality for reliable components.

Avoid error-prone and time consuming model simplification.

Handle nonlinearities directly within the optimization.

Define structural optimization tasks interactively.

Allows user to create fluid flow devices with reduced pressure drop and improve flow uniformity.

Tosca Structure

Tosca Structure is the market leading technology for structural optimization based on industry standard FEA packages (Abaqus, ANSYS, MSC Nastran) to create innovative and sustainable designs. From early conceptual design through to detailed design improvements Tosca Structure offers the full range of optimization solutions.

Tosca Structure Modules

Structure.topology: Perform topology optimization to get conceptual designs in early product development states.

Structure.shape: Decrease stress concentrations for more reliable and durable components.

Structure.sizing: Improve design via sheet thickness or beam width optimizations.

Structure.bead: Discover the optimal bead layout for shell structures.

Tosca Fluid

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.

Highlights Tosca Fluid

Seamless integration with leading CFD solvers (Star-CCM+, ANSYS Fluent).

No time-consuming parameterization, scripting and code coupling.

No initial design is necessary.

Optimal utilization of the given design space.

Works for industrial large scale models with arbitrary complex design spaces.

A single CFD-solver run is sufficient for the optimization.
