New Features in D-SPEX with Application

This paper presents new features of the optimization post processing tool D-SPEX. The features are explained by means of various examples. The visualization of meta-models has been developed to a point where it can be a valuable tool for engineers. It aids to a new understanding of engineering problems and yields to novel solutions of existing problems. By means of a material identification for strain rate dependent materials it shall be shown how the knowledge about relationships between parameters and responses can lead to exceptional solutions. Furthermore various examples will be presented that shall try to give an impression of the way metamodels can help in understanding engineering problems.
