Integrating modeFRONTIER with Enventive and ANSYS Workbench
ESTECO and Enventive Engineering Inc. present the integration of modeFRONTIER, Enventive®, and Ansys Workbench to optimize the shape of an electrical connector. ​In this webinar Alexander Duggan ( Senior Application Engineer, ESTECO) and Kristin Dawson (Product Manager, Enventive Engineering, Inc.) demonstrate using Enventive® to analyze variation of the forces and friction between a pin and connector, coupled with using Ansys Workbench to determine the stress in the connector as it is deflected by the pin. By integrating Enventive® and Ansys Workbench, modeFRONTIER can optimize design parameters to ensure that the pin insertion force and contact reaction force fulfill design requirements while ensuring that the stress in the connector component does not exceed the yield strength of the material. Agenda: ANSYS Workbench for finite element analysis (FEA) Enventive's force and dimentional variation analysis modeFRONTIER integration with Enventive and ANSYS Workbench
Robust Design Optimization with modeFRONTIER 2016
​In this webinar Alberto Clarich (Technical Manager, ESTECO) presents the modeFRONTIER 2016 approach of dealing with uncertainties is based on Multi-Objective Robust Design Optimization (MORDO). This consists of investigating the noise factors in the neighborhood of a sample design with a given probability distribution. While tackling optimization within manufacturing process, engineers face uncertainty with regards to design variables and problem parameters from various sources. These uncertainties impact the optimization process both in terms of reliability and in terms of robustness. Using modeFRONTIER, this case applied a multi-objective optimization algorithm to optimize mean values while minimizing their variations. Highlights: Theory and real world applications about Robust Design and Polynomial Chaos Efficient methodologies for large number of uncertainties Robust Design Optimization and Reliability-based Optimization
