APA’s analysis experts generate an innovative concept design proposal by using Topology/Shape optimization techniques. Topology Optimization is a mathematical technique that produces an optimized shape and material distribution for a structure within a given package space. And it is used at the concept level of the design process to arrive at a conceptual design proposal that is then fine-tuned for performance and manufacturability.

In shape optimization, the outer boundary of the structure is reformed to solve the optimization problem. Starting with a finite element model, a possible design is defined first by morphing the model, then by recording it as a set of node locations. And by this, we can define an optimum shape to reduce stress concentrations to changing the cross-sections to meet specific design requirements.
