Shape Optimization of an MBB Beam
Application ID: 75301
This model demonstrates how the Free Shape Boundary feature can be used to perform shape optimization on a design found with topology optimization. The model uses the same objective and constraint as the original, which results in a slightly higher stiffness for the same mass.
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.
