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)

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)

Solving the chainsaw kickback problem with Maplesoft and ANSYS

Maximising chainsaw safety over the tool’s life by analysing the kickback problem and lifetime tool fatigue and performance

The avoidance or reduction of chainsaw kickback is a key safety feature for manufacturers. The challenges for engineers are to obtain more accurate analyses of the problem over the tool’s lifecycle.
