GENESIS

Structural Design Optimization Software

GENESIS® is a fully integrated structural finite element analysis and design optimization software package, focused on Topology.

Analysis capabilities include: static, normal modes, direct and modal frequency analysis, random response analysis, heat transfer, system buckling calculations, and accoustic analysis.

Design optimization is based on the advanced approximation concepts approach to find an optimum design efficiently and reliably.

Topology Optimization looks for optimal distribution of material, removing the unnecessary one (e.g. elements deletion).
It can be enhanced by acting directly on mesh updating (e.g. freeform, sizing, etc.), aimed to tune the ongoing concept design, the "Shape Optimization".

GENESIS is a product of Vanderplaats Research & Development, Inc. (VR&D)

Full Body Topology Optimization

Main Benefits

  Easy to learn (user-friendly pre-post processor Design Studio)

  Topology Optimizer can handle extremely large numbers of design variables (typically < 20 FE analyses)

  Many Design Optimization options: Topology plus further ones acting directly on mesh model (nodes position, shell thickness, etc.) also without parametric CAD

  Unique manufacturing constraints (in addition to standard manufacturing constraints)

Printer

RecurDyn offers a dedicated toolkit to pre-process, solve and post-process problems involving flexible media

The final portion of the paper path of a laser printer has been studied using the Media Transport Toolkit to evaluate the influence of the corrugating roller which is used to corrugate the sheet to keep it straight before falling into the tray.

CASE STUDY

Shape Rolling of a European Standard Beam IPE Profile

A pilot study carried out by engineers from EnginSoft and Beltrame

The study allowed the engineers to estimate the shape profile geometry after each roll pass, the rolls wear and the total load and point at which the beam will bend in off-center setups.
