In our competitive global society, successful and economical design of automotive and industrial structures is crucial.
Optimizing the geometry of individual pieces of complex machines improves performance and efficiency of the entire device.
Shape optimization problems are typically solved by minimizing the cost function, a mathematical formula that predicts the losses (or ‘cost’) corresponding with a process; the end goal is the creation of an optimal shape, one that minimizes the cost function while meeting certain constraints.
