If you want to learn how to optimize a topology in COMSOL Multiphysics®, then tune into this webinar.

Early on in the product design process, you usually have a lot of freedom. However, it can be difficult to utilize this freedom in a systematic way, such as to get a rough idea for a geometry that can form the basis for further development. Topology optimization can be a solution to this issue, because you only have to draw a geometry in which the optimal geometry should fit. Although there are still constraints and objectives, very little is assumed about the geometry.

Topology optimization always involves the use of gradient-based optimization, which can be performed automatically using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. These optimization problems often have to be regularized, and this process is fully supported through the Density Model tool in the Optimization Module.

In this webinar, we will show how to build a model that solves a 2D structural topology optimization problem. The workflow can be generalized to other physics, such as microfluidics and acoustics. Finally, we discuss how the resulting geometry can be exported for further analysis and 3D printing.
