Bracket — Stress Optimization with Fatigue Evaluation

Application ID: 105251

Shape optimization with respect to fatigue properties is not supported, but fatigue properties are well correlated with the maximum stress. The model demonstrates how optimization with respect to a p-norm of the von Mises stress can be used to improve fatigue properties without increasing mass or decreasing stiffness.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
