What is it?
Transport industry contributes largely to carbon emission to the atmosphere, resulting in greenhouse effect and its disastrous consequences. According to case studies, a few grams weight reduction of automobile or aerospace engine components would drastically reduce the emission and substantially enhance the overall performance of the engines. Topology optimisation is a mathematical model that analyses the stresses coming on to a structure, it’s direction, location and magnitude which identifies unwanted material from the parts. That unwanted portion gets eliminated and finally what we get is equally strong but light-weight part design.
- Material Saving
- Reduction in production time
- Reduction in production & part cost
- Improvement in product performance. For e.g. better fuel efficiency due to reduction in weight, less wear of sliding components, easy to assemble
- less carbon footprint
|01||Choose a part for Topology Optimization and create a Cad model|
|02||Define stresses coming on to the part while in operation|
|03||Software package analysis stresses and removes material which does not affect the functionality of the part|
|04||3D print the optimized CAD model|
