Shape and Topology Optimization of an Extruded Beam
Application ID: 89381
This model demonstrates 3D topology and shape optimization for an extruded geometry. This can be achieved using equation-based modeling and extrusion operators. The model considers stiffness maximization of a beam subject to a constraint on the mass, but the method can be used with any variant of the stationary and frequency domain solvers.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
