In case you haven’t heard, Dassault Systèmes announced a really exciting acquisition today. The SIMULIA brand is expanding with the addition of FE-DESIGN to the growing 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This will extend SIMULIA market leading solutions for design optimization. Check out the News Release for the official statement.
If you’re unfamiliar with FE-DESIGN products, you’ve been missing out! 🙂 Headquartered in Karlsruhe, Germany, FE-DESIGN developed TOSCA Structure and TOSCA Fluid, two leading optimization technologies for both FEA and CFD simulations. These tools provide exceptional advantages to the simulation analyst, helping to create innovative and more easily manufactured design early in the product development process to deliver better products to the market faster.
- TOSCA Structure is the market leading technology for structural optimization, leveraging a variety of FEA packages. It allows for rapid and reliable design of lightweight, rigid and durable components and systems. Using topology optimization with TOSCA Structure technologies can help determine optimal design proposals during the design concept phase. Further detail improvements through shape and bead optimization make these designs ready for production and manufacture.
- TOSCA Fluid is so far the only available system for topology optimization of channel flow problems. Starting from an initial design space, an optimized design of a flow channel is determined automatically by TOSCA Fluid. With only one CFD solver run an optimized structure is derived (e.g. structural redesign with significantly reduced pressure drop). This unique technology allows an economic topology optimization of industrial large scale flow applications.
Imagine the possibilities for increased efficiency and creative design when using these technologies with in association with current SIMULIA products like Isight, our process automation and design optimization solution. Such a combination will provide a comprehensive suite of applications to support decisions ranging from the shape of a product to entire business processes.
