GSAM

GENESIS Structural Optimization for ANSYS Mechanical

GSAM (GENESIS Structural Optimization for ANSYS Mechanical) is an integrated extension that adds topology, topography, freeform, sizing and topometry optimization to the ANSYS environment. Designers benefit by automatically generating innovative designs in a reliable, robust and easy-to-use interface.

Benefits and Highlights

  • Generate Innovative Designs
  • Reduce Cost and Improve Performance
  • Reduce Engineering Time
  • Easily add structural optimization to existing ANSYS workbench workflow
  • Fast and reliable structural optimization
  • Easy and Convenient to post-process optimization results

The Structural Optimization Capabilites include: Topology, Topography, Freeform, Shape Optimization with Domains (access through Design Studio), Sizing, Topometry, Mix of any of the above.

GTAM

GENESIS Topology for ANSYS Mechanical

GTAM (GENESIS® Topology for ANSYS Mechanical) is an integrated extension that adds topology optimization to the ANSYS environment. Designers benefit by automatically generating innovative designs in a reliable, robust, and easy-touse interface.

Benefits and Highlights

  • Support multiple loading conditions and different analysis systems including Static Structural, Modal, Linear Buckling, Harmonic and Random Vibrations
  • Several built-in responses for objectives and constraints such as strain energies, frequencies, mass, displacement, etc.
  • Several built-in manufacturing constraints for the designable region such as symmetries, casting, extrusion, etc.
