Ansys topology optimization

    • utku

      Hi all, 

      In my research, conducted topology optimization both ansys and abaqus tosca opt. tool. Same geometry and BC's applied but and results almost same. But, I have a question about this two opt. solver. Abaqus tosca computational time is very high according to ansys topology optimization tool. Optimization problem converged nearly 50 iteration in abaqus tosca and 1 iteration takes nearly 20 min. but in ansys total optimization problem solved in 10 min. Anyone knows what the reason of this  or ?  This two method uses SIMP method ? what optimization algorithm is  using ansys and abaqus ??

      You can read the ANSYS help to learn more about topology optimization.
