The Tosca optimization suite provides fast and powerful structural and flow optimization solutions based on FEA and CFD simulations. Tosca optimization suite consists of two products: Tosca Structure is for optimized structural designs, and Tosca Fluid provides optimized fluid flow design concepts.

Tosca Structure delivers powerful optimization solutions for the design of lightweight, stiff, and durable parts and assemblies within shorter development cycles to maximize performance, minimize material and weight, and discover new design possibilities. Tosca Structure offers functionalities for topology, shape, bead, and sizing optimization.

Tosca Fluid enables topology optimization-driven design concepts for fluid flow systems and components. Use its capabilities to create innovative design ideas automatically for a defined flow task and available package space. Tosca Fluid’s unique technology helps you achieve the highest flow performance, quality, and eco-efficiency.


SIMULIA - Tosca

Efficient Optimization Based on FEA &CFD

  • Accelerate conceptual design, reduce time-to-market

  • Allows the user to create fluid flow devices with reduced pressure drop and improve flow uniformity

Tosca Structure is the market leading technology for structural optimization based on industry standard FEA packages (Abaqus, ANSYS, MSC Nastran) to create innovative and sustainable designs. From early conceptual design through to detailed design improvements Tosca Structure offers the full range of optimization solutions:

Optimization Modules

Graphical User Interfaces

Tosca Fluid features a unique design and non-parametric fluid flow topology optimization technology for components and systems. Utilize full design flexibility and create an innovative, optimized design concept for defined design spaces and flow tasks. No initial design is necessary. Only one solver run is needed using industry-standard CFD solvers.

Key Benefits

  • Economic use of existing IT investments
  • Automated design development leads to less physical testing and a reduction in the number of prototypes
  • Shorter development cycles by combining design and optimization of fluid flow tasks early in the design process
  • Advanced designs with higher product performance and reduced energy consumption
  • Faster time-to-market for innovative designs

Design Concepts in a Virtual Product Development

The product development costs are mainly determined in the early concept phase. The automatic generation of optimized design proposals will reduce the number of product development cycles and the number of physical prototypes. The product performance is increased and the development costs are significantly reduced. Starting with the definition of the maximum allowed design space, Tosca helps you to find the design that fits the design space and considers all product requirements.

Simulation-Driven Design Improvement

Existing designs often only need small changes to improve the overall product performance. Using Tosca Structure’s optimization methods the relevant product requirements can be taken into account. Design improvements are realized in a shorter development time.
