Automotive Body Optimization Workshop

Optimization of Automotive Body

About the Workshop:

This workshop will provide an overview of important capabilities of GENESIS for optimizing car bodies. Some of the topics covered are highlighted below. Attendees would solve examples that demonstrate the ease of use of the software in optimizing entire automobile bodies. Attendees will have a chance to interact with experienced engineers on the subject.

What will be covered:

  • Overview of GENESIS Software Features and Capabilities
  • Optimization techniques to improve torsional rigidity of car bodies
  • Methods to improve bending/torsion/selected natural frequencies of car bodies
  • Tracking specific modes for improvement
  • Finding optimal locations for reinforcements and/or bead patterns
  • Techniques to obtain design targets
  • Importance of Inertia relief in topology optimization
  • Incorporating manufacturing constraints into the car body design
  • Optimizing for Crashworthiness: coupling GENESIS with LS-DYNA
  • Use of Design Studio for easy pre and post processing


GENESIS is a fully integrated finite element analysis and design optimization software package, written by leading experts in structural optimization. Shape, sizing, topography, topometry, and topology optimizations are available to the user.

Design Studio for GENESIS is a design oriented pre- and post-processor graphical interface for GENESIS. Design Studio allows users to display finite element models and to easily create GENESIS design data. It allows users to display analysis as well as optimization results.
