This demo illustrates the connection between KIMEME, Solidworks and Ansys. This demo optimize the geometry of a bracket, designed to support a shelf and charged with a given pressure, in order to minimize stress. Von Mises stress is calculated by means of FEM analysis, carried on by Ansys, while the aspect ratio of the geometry is modified by Solidworks.

Support length [40…160] mm

Support length must be shorter than bracket length

Minimize Von Mises stress
