Topology Optimization based on FEA and CFD simulations
The Tosca optimization suite enables engineers to take full advantage of any improvement potential while leveraging advanced simulation capabilities. Tosca Structure and Tosca Fluid – as leading technologies for structural optimization and flow optimization – offer efficient optimization based on FEA and CFD simulations.
Easy setup of the optimization task, and a shorter time-to-market with fewer prototypes and physical tests.
Benefit from more realistic results, automatic validation, and handling of complex manufacturing requirements.
Achieve weight, material, and design space savings, and create the most economical design possible.
Tosca integrates seamlessly with leading FEA & durability solvers such as Abaqus, Ansys and MSC Nastran.
This is the market leading technology 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.
This is the only system for topology optimization of channel flow problems. Starting from an initial design space, an optimized design of a flow channel is determined automatically. Using only one CFD solver, run an optimized structure with, e.g., significantly reduced pressure drop, or where homogeneous flow is derived. This allows for the first time an economic topology optimization of industrial large scale flow applications.

Tosca Fluid Key Features:
Concepts in a Virtual Product Development
Automatic generation of optimized design proposals reduces the number of product development cycles and the number of physical prototypes. All you need is the definition of the maximum allowed design space.
Simulation-Driven Design Improvement
Existing designs often need small changes to adapt the design to changes in the external boundary conditions. Using optimization methods, design changes can quickly be applied, and all relevant product requirements can be considered.
Product Knowledge and Decision Support
The modern product development process cannot be driven solely by traditional analytical, experimental, and simulation methods. SIMULIA provides intuitive and user interactive methods to analyze existing datasets from simulation and physical testing.
