Efficient Optimization Based on FEA and CFD Simulations

Tosca - The Optimization Suite

The Tosca optimization suite provides fast and powerful structural and flow optimization solutions based on FEA and CFD simulations. Tosca optimization suite consists of two products: Tosca Structure is for optimized structural designs, and Tosca Fluid provides optimized fluid flow design concepts.

Tosca Structure delivers powerful optimization solutions for design of lightweight, stiff, and durable parts and assemblies within shorter development cycles to maximize performance, minimize material and weight, and discover new design possibilities. Tosca Structure offers functionalities for topology, shape, bead and sizing optimization.

Tosca Fluid enables topology optimization-driven design concepts for fluid flow systems and components. Use its capabilities to create innovative design ideas automatically for a defined flow task and available package space. Tosca Fluid’s unique technology helps you achieve the highest flow performance, quality and eco-efficiency.


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.

  • Accelerate conceptual design, reduce time-to-market
  • Support ready-to-manufacture product design
  • Save weight and ensure highest result quality for reliable components
  • Avoid error-prone and time consuming model simplification
  • Benefit of realistic simulation and handle nonlinearities directly within the optimization
  • Define structural optimization tasks interactively in intuitive graphic user interfaces: Optimization Module in Abaqus/CAE, Tosca ANSA environment  (Tae), Tosca Structure.gui
  • Allows user to create fluid flow devices with reduced pressure drop and improve flow uniformity
