Efficient Design of Thermo-mechanically Loaded Components with Tosca Structure

Course Objective

Enhanced performance requirements and extreme load conditions increase the risk of failure for structures with thermomechanical loading. For an efficient design of such structures, Tosca Structure considers nonlinear effects such as large deformations and plastic strains and/or evaluates durability analysis results (low cycle fatigue and high cycle fatigue). The direct coupling with realistic simulation allows for the full optimization potential: error-prone surrogate models are no longer needed.

In this course you will learn how to use Tosca Structure workflows for the design optimization of thermo-mechanically loaded components (e.g. turboloader housings, exhaust manifolds, etc.).

The topics covered include:

  • Morphing for easy generation of design variants and assessment of important factors
  • Non-parametric shape optimization in combination with durability analysis (low cycle fatigue and high cycle fatigue)
  • Consideration of nonlinear analysis (plastic strains, large deformations) in the structural optimization process
  • Structural optimization for thermomechanically loaded structures

Who should attend

The course is ideal for Tosca Structure users interested in acquiring more insight into specific aspects of Tosca Structure and gaining new impetus. Tosca Structure beginners who want to deepen their knowledge after taking "Introduction to Tosca Structure" can also benefit from this course.
