LS-TaSC Product Status

The LS-TaSC Version 3.1 topology and shape design tool is presented. The presentation introduces the multi-point numerical derivatives scheme that allows constrained optimization using the mass fractions and load case weights as variables. This allows constrained optimization using any response or mathematical expressions as constraints or objectives. Additionally, the postprocessing of the final design geometry by the creation of iso-surfaces is also reviewed. Application examples illustrate these capabilities.
