Topology Optimization Tower

Recommended Posts



I am trying to use the optimization techniques in Inspire to model a tower which is subjected to a compressive load at the top. Every time I run the optimization for maximizing stiffness in the program, the final results in the design space are always vertical columns. Is there a way to specify some buckling constraints in the model?

We cannot apply buckling constraints for topology optimization in Inspire.Inspire uses OptiStruct solver for analysis and optimization.Please refer below post on buckling constraint & topology optimization based on OptiStruct.
