EFFICIENT OPTIMIZATION BASED ON FEA AND CFD SIMULATIONS

Today’s engineers aspire to develop innovative products in the shortest development time possible. Lightweight design, safety, comfort, performance, efficiency, and durability are just some of the aspects to take into account.

As leading technologies for structural optimization and flow optimization, both Tosca Structure and Tosca Fluid offer efficient optimization based on industry standard FEA (Abaqus, ANSYS, MSC Nastran) and CFD software (STAR-CCM+ and ANSYS Fluent).

The Tosca optimization suite enables engineers to take full advantage of any improvement potential while leveraging advanced simulation capabilities. It creates optimized design concepts to achieve the highest performance, quality, and eco-efficiency in a shorter development time.
