OMS - Optimization of Mechanical Structures

The possibilities of saving computing time by using submodels are explored. For this purpose, optimization is performed in different levels in an interlocked manner. For example, the following levels are involved:

- Level 1: Finding the best possible concept

- Level 2: Optimal design of main system components

- Level 3: Detailed optimization of individual components

Different design variables and different objective and restriction functions are taken into account in the individual levels. The optimizations of the individual levels are coupled by appropriate interlocking algorithms. This enables the optimization of large systems. In the BMBF project "Development of software methods for efficient substitute model-based optimization for crash design in the vehicle development process (eEgO)", which is part of the KMUInnovativ funding program, the methods were implemented as prototypes together with partners.
