DS SIMULIA TOSCA TOSCA Fluid is so far the only available system for topology optimization of channel flow problems. Starting from an initial design space, an optimized design of a flow channel is determined automatically by TOSCA Fluid. With only one CFD solver run an optimized structure with e.g. significantly reduced pressure drop or homogeneous flow is derived. This allows for the first time an economic topology optimization of industrial large scale flow applicatons.

Tosca - The Optimization Suite

Today’s engineers aspire to develop innovative products in the shortest development time possible. Lightweight design, safety, comfort, performance, efficiency, and durability are just some of the aspects to take into account.

As leading technologies for structural optimization and flow optimization, both Tosca Structure and Tosca Fluid offer efficient optimization based on industry standard FEA (Abaqus, ANSYS, MSC Nastran) and CFD software (STAR-CCM+ and ANSYS Fluent).

The Tosca optimization suite enables engineers to take full advantage of any improvement potential while leveraging advanced simulation capabilities. It creates optimized design concepts to achieve the highest performance, quality, and eco-efficiency in a shorter development time.

Engineers have to develop innovative products in the shortest development time possible. Lightweight design, safety, comfort, performance, efficiency, and durability are some of the manifold requirements that have to be considered.

Design Concept

Design Concepts in a Virtual Product Development
The product development costs are mainly determined in the early concept phase. The automatic generation of optimized design proposals will reduce the number of product development cycles and the number of physical prototypes. The product performance is increased and the development costs are significantly reduced. Starting with the definition of the maximum allowed design space, Tosca helps you to find the design that fits the design space and considers all product requirements.

Design Improvement

Simulation-Driven Design Improvement
Existing designs often only need small changes to improve the overall product performance. Using Tosca Structure’s optimization methods the relevant product requirements can be taken into account. Design improvements are realized in a shorter development time.

The Tosca optimization suite enhances SIMULIA’s realistic simulation applications by creating sustainable, reliable, and innovative designs in a faster development time.
