Founded as Vanderplaats Research & Development in 1987 by Garret Vanderplaats, a recognised leader in the field of design optimisation, OmniQuest have developed GENESIS to be the most comprehensive structural optimisation code on the market today. Continually being developed for improved methods, performance and usability, Genesis provides the next step in CAE led design methods.

With optimisers developed by experts in the field GENESIS continues to deliver unique capabilities, demonstrated by the fact that it is chosen by major Automotive OEMs and Formula 1® Teams as their optimisation tools of choice.

The following optimisation methods are available within GENESIS:

Topology - imitating nature's evolutionary process to find an optimal load path.

Features include:

• Multiple loading conditions
• Various constraints
• Diverse manufacturing constraint options

GENESIS Topology

 

Composites - coupled with GRM's OptiAssist tool, GENESIS provides the most comprehensive toolset for composite designers to develop optimal structural laminates. Using GENESIS & OptiAssist, engineers can:


• Uniquely develop optimal ply shapes & preforms
• Uniquely optimise for stiffness, strength, vibration and buckling

GENESIS Composites

Shape - shape optimisation enables users to parameterise changes in the dimensions of their design.


This allows GENESIS to identify the combination of each shape change that provides the optimum design

GENESIS Shape Optimisation

Sizing – Optimise almost any property in your analysis model including:


• Panel gauges
• Beam Cross Sections
• Mass, Cog and Inertia

GENESIS Sizing

Extending the sizing optimisation method, Topometry allows users to refine the property optimisation to an element-by-element basis. The method is ideally suited to the automatic calculation of:


• Casting thickness distribution
• Moulding thickness distribution

GENESIS Topometry

Topography, also known as bead shape optimisation, allows users to automatically develop swaging patterns in shell structures. Topography is very efficient to:


• Solve panel vibration issues
• Improve component stiffness and reduce stress at no additional mass

GENESIS Topography

The free-shape methods allow the outer boundary of a solid structure to be freely moved to improve the performance or reduce its weight. Free shape is particularly well suited to:


• Fine tuning a design to achieve weight savings on a mature design
• Identifying and resolving localised stress issues for a given design

GENESIS Freeform

The RDM method, provided as part of GRM’s Design Toolkit module, enable users to automatically generate design space and define optimisation studies to identify where to reinforce your designs. RDM can be used to:


• Identify areas for load path improvement
• Rapidly develop optimum rib patterns for castings and mouldings
