Optimization of a component / assembly group can be performed on the structure / surface as well as on the topography / topology. Topography optimization primarily creates stiffening elements within the part (such as beads). Topology optimization finds the optimal material distribution within the design space satisfying various constraints and boundary conditions. Project examples of structural / surface and topography / topological optimization performed for customers of MORPHOTEC are:
Topology and structural optimization
Topography optimization of PET-Containers in due consideration of various loading conditions (top-loadung / side-loading).
Topology optimization of various components within combustion engines (main bearing cap, conrod, crank case etc.) satisfying inequality and / or equality constraints (e.g. stress limits, usable material ratio and limits for deformation).
Surface optimization of highly stressed part regions to minimize local stresses and stress gradients (Tensile stress and equivalent stress).
