Ansys Topology Optimization

    • Marcos Garcia

      Hello all,

      Im running a simulation about topology optimization about a part, which is only 1 body and before that i run the static structural analysis.

      I set a range mass between 40-60% with Density Based. After the simulation, the solution is quite strange because the software split the body in 3 differents parts without merge (on the holes, there is a cilindrical support because of the bolted connection and on the top of the object there is a fix support). 

      What should I do to improve the topology optimiation of this part and get a merge solid like the original one? Could you say me any tips for that simulation related to my object or recommend another kind of method of topology optimization?

      Thanks in advance.
