Introduction to Shape Optimization
Using shape optimization in your models can result in a number of advantages that aren't possible when using standard parametric models. This brief, previously held webinar explains general optimization and introduces the shape optimization capabilities in COMSOL Multiphysics®. You will see several examples of how to perform shape optimization using the features in the Optimization Module, an add-on product to the software. You can download the example models from the following pages:
- Shape Optimization of a Tuning Fork
- Design Optimization of a Beam
- Shape Optimization of a Shell
- Optimization of an Extruded MBB Beam
Some of the features that were added in version 5.5 are mentioned in the recording; you can find more information on these features as well as improvements made with each version of COMSOL Multiphysics® from the Release History. To learn more about the optimization capabilities in the latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics®, visit the Optimization Module product page.
