This demo illustrates the connection between KIMEME and Strand7. This demo optimize the thickness of a wall, charged with a given force on an edge, in order to minimize the main stress value. Both geometry and FEM analysis are carried on by Strand7.

DESIGN VARIABLES

Wall thickness [1,7…2] mm

CONSTRAINTS

The wall is considered as a 2D plate, which is assigned a variable thickness

OBJECTIVES

Minimize mean stress

OPTIMIZATION ALGORITHM

Differential Evolution

RUNS

2000 evaluations, with parallel execution on 4 workstations using KIMEME Network. Execution time: 10 minutes.
