GENESIS Structural Optimization for ANSYS Mechanical

Structural Optimization Extension for ANSYS® Mechanical


GENESIS Structural Optimization for ANSYS®(*) Mechanical (GSAM) is an integrated extension that adds Structural optimization to the ANSYS® environment. GSAM can perform topology optimization as well as topography, freeform, sizing and topometry design. Designers benefit by automatically generating innovative designs in a reliable, robust and easy-to-use interface. The extension allows the user to setup the structural optimization problem, optimize, post-processing, export optimized geometry all within ANSYS® environment. 

GENESIS Topology Optimization for ANSYS®(*) Mechanical (GTAM) is a subset of GSAM. GTAM is limited to topology optimization only. 

GTAM/GSAM helps to design light and/or stiff structures. It also helps users to improve the performance of their designs. The software uses advanced optimization techniques that allows users to quickly generate efficient structural designs.

  • Reduce Cost and Improve Performance - generating new designs based on user criteria such as mass minimization, frequency maximization, buckling load or displacement constraints and many more.
  • Reduce Engineering Time - efficient solver and robust optimizer speeds up the solving time, especially for large scale problem.
  • Generate Innovative Designs - providing design insights and helping create innovative designs
  • Easily add structural optimization to existing ANSYS® Workbench workflow
  • Easy and fast to create structural optimization data
  • Easy and fast to post-process structural optimization results
  • Export optimized geometry in STL or IGES format
  • Multiple Analysis Systems - Supports different analysis systems such as Static, Modal, Linear Buckling, Harmonic, Random, Thermal and Transient. Multiple loading conditions can be designed simultaneously.

  • Built-in Responses for Objectives and Constraints - Multiple built-in responses for objectives and constraints such as strain energies, frequencies, mass, displacement, contact pressure/clearance, stress, equivalent radiated power, etc.

  • Built-in Manufacturing Constraints for Topology Optimization - Comprehensive built-in manufacturing constraints for the designable region such as symmetries, extrusion, casting, stamping, radial filling, minimum/maximum member size, etc.

  • Built-in Manufacturing Constraints for Topography, Freeform and Topometry Optimization - Comprehensive built-in manufacturing constraints for the designable region such as symmetries, extrusion, bead/grid fractions, coarse freeform, coarse topometry, etc.

  • Integration with ANSYS® - The user can perform structural optimization for linear static, nonlinear static, thermal-static, and transient analysis using the ANSYS solver.

Design Studio for GENESIS

Graphical Pre- and Post-processing Software

Design Studio for GENESIS 

Design Studio for GENESIS is a design oriented pre- and post-processor graphical interface for the GENESIS Structural Analysis and Optimization Software. Design Studio allows users to display finite element models and to easily create GENESIS design data. It allows users to display analysis as well as optimization results. 

  • Easy and fast to create GENESIS data
    • Built-in trails makes it easy to create objectives and constraints
    • Built-in trails makes it easy to parameterize the model
  • Easy and fast to post-process
    • Contour plots and animations for stress, displacement, thickness, etc.
    • Deformed shape plots and animations
    • Displays simultaneously deformation and contours
    • On the fly isodensities for topology
    • Frequency response plots
  • Helps to create reports and presentations
    • Allows making pictures (png format)
    • Allows creating animations (gif format)
    • Catalogs of views to create pictures with same orientations
    • Back and forward buttons to return to previous view
    • Color control for printings
  • Task Oriented - just follow built-in trails (wizards) for design tasks.

  • Multitask - in Design Studio multiple tasks can be performed simultaneously without abandoning the current trail (e.g., add a design variable while creating perturbation vectors).

  • Easy Selections - Design Studio is designed to easily select all quantities needed in optimization such as grids, elements, properties, etc.

  • Powerful Filters - in Design Studio limit list of data to what is necessary (taking out unnecessary guesses).

  • Modern Architecture - Design Studio incorporates modern architecture such as undo, redo, cut, paste, back, forward, etc.
