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)
