The thermal and flow optimization process enabled by Diabatix's topology optimization software and driven by AI results in optimal designs and performances beyond human imagination.
Topology optimization (TO) is a mathematical method that optimizes material usage and layout within a given design space for a given set of loads, boundary conditions, and constraints to maximize the system's performance.
Topology optimization is a mathematical method used across many engineering mediums to optimize a structure or component's layout to minimize its weight by removing excess material, reducing thermal stress or achieving other desired performance goals.
Topology optimization problem-solving to improve design performance
Diabatix's completely customized topology optimization will meet your design targets and manufacturing requirements.
Unlike pure parametric or shape optimization, generative design through topology optimization is extremely adaptable to design parameters like design space, material properties, and geometric constraints.
Any change to your operating conditions can result in a completely different, yet optimal design topology. Perfect for the many thermal challenges you are facing today.
Diabatix's software ColdStream generates custom designs through topology optimization. That's why the thermal and flow optimization process driven by ColdStream results in designs and performances beyond human imagination. If you are more interested in off-the-shelf pin or fin heat sinks, ColdStream also offers parametric optimizations through its standard design mode. Don't hesitate to contact us.
How does topology optimization work?
Topology optimization involves using algorithms to determine the best solution or optimal material distribution within a given design space, subject to specified constraints such as stresses, strains, and other mechanical or thermal loads.
While the most common objective function of structural optimization is compliance, ColdStream deals with other objective functions, such as temperature minimization, temperature variance minimization, and more.
Additionally, ColdStream handles constraints like pressure loss, and maximum temperature, among others. ColdStream starts the design from an empty design region and builds up the structure.
This leads to design solutions characterized by high structural performance complying with competing objective functions using the least amount of material possible to achieve the desired performance targets. In topology optimization, the design space is divided into smaller elements, and the algorithm decides whether to include or exclude each element to achieve the desired performance criteria.
The resulting optimized design created from topology optimization can take many forms, from simple shapes to complex structures with intricate geometries that would be difficult or impossible to design using traditional methods.
