Scope : Design and engineering of large scale installation structure
▲ geometric configuration. Note every arm has single freedom of rotation.
▲ Mount detail before shape optimization
▲ Shape optimization (Fusion 360)
▲ Left : After optimization and FEM / Right : Before optimization
With FEM and topology optimization, we could save 50% of material and weight on mount, and 35% from aluminum blades, which dramatically reduced structural stress.
▲ Each blade reach upto 7m in length, weighing 35kg each after optimization.
