This demo illustrates the connection between KIMEME, Creo Parametric and Ansys. This demo optimize the geometry of a bracket, designed to support a shelf and charged with a given pressure, in order to minimize stress. Von Mises stress value is calculated by means of FEM analysis, carried on by Ansys, while the aspect ratio of the geometry is modified by Creo Parametric.

DESIGN VARIABLES

Support dimension [10…200] mm

CONSTRAINTS

Support dimension must be shorter than bracket length

OBJECTIVES

Minimize Von Mises stress

OPTIMIZATION ALGORITHM

Differential Evolution

RUNS

2000 evaluations, with parallel execution on 4 workstations using KIMEME Network. Execution time: 30 minutes.
