Driven by high quantities and material costs, components are getting thinner and lighter. Nevertheless, the strength requirements must be met. Many engineers are faced with this task. The solution is topology optimization with Simcenter NASTRAN.

Starting with the assembly space, a new design can be determined under the restriction of manufacturing influences and strength values. The simulation engineer is exempt from the time consuming manual creation of multiple variants but can automatically generate the best design.
