Topological optimization of a motion controlled crankshaft mechanism (by M. Herrmann, Prof. Ruschitzka; Germany)

This work deals with the simulation and optimization of a crank drive assembly of a reciprocating piston engine. The research should investigate how the software Altair HyperWorks - with its modules MotionView, HyperMesh, HyperView and the solver OptiStruct - can reduce the development time.
