SIMULIA Tosca

Efficient Optimization Based on FEA and CFD Simulations

Simulia-ToscaFEA & CFD SIMULATIONS

Today’s engineers aspire to develop innovative products in the shortest development time possible. Security, comfort, performance, efficiency, durability, and flexibility are just some of the aspects to take into account.

As leading technologies for structural optimization and flow optimization, both Tosca Structure and Tosca Fluid offer efficient optimization based on industry standard FEA (Abaqus, ANSYS, MSC Nastran) and CFD software (STAR-CCM+ and ANSYS Fluent).

The SIMULIA Tosca optimization suite enables engineers to take full advantage of any improvement potential while leveraging advanced simulation capabilities. It provides fast and powerful structural and flow optimization solutions based on FEA and CFD simulations. The suite consists of two products: Tosca Structure – for optimized structural designs, and Tosca Fluid – for optimized fluid flow design concepts.

Tosca Structure

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.
