To carry out optimization on the pulley, Suzhou Samsung chose OptiStruct, a key
component of Altair’s HyperWorks suite of computer-aided engineering tools and a
modern structural analysis and optimization solver. “OptiStruct provided us with important optimization features,” said Mr. Cheng, “such as topology, size and shape optimization. We were particularly interested in topology optimization to obtain the most efficient
structure or distribution of material used in the structure.”
