About this event

In complex engineering problems, particularly with multiphysics, the multitude of boundary conditions quickly becomes too much for a single engineer to oversee. At the same time, the maturing of Additive Manufacturing has increased the solution space by allowing geometries unobtainable with classical methods.

A novel design methodology to address these challenges is Topology Optimization, where mathematical optimization algorithms are used to generate geometries that best fit the boundary conditions and constraints set by the user.

The goal of the DSPE Knowledge Day is to familiarize participants with the subject of Topology Optimization: the state of the art, the possibilities and limitations, and perhaps most importantly: examples of practical cases from industry where it has already been successfully applied to solve precision engineering problems.

Speakers Day 1

  • Fred van Keulen (TU Delft): Optimization and precision engineering
  • Fred Huizinga (ASML): Topology optimization of a main support frame
  • Marco Swierstra (Femto): High-speed rotating impeller
  • Gerrit Oosterhuis & Tim Wubbe (VDL-ETG): Horizontal air shower for a wafer handler

 

We will start at 3:00pm and we will end at 5:00pm
