We perform optimisation for a variety of physical and engineering systems, which include electromagnetics, heat transfer, hydrodynamics, solid mechanics, ray optics, and particle transport. We provide models and optimisation algorithms that are suited to the needs and technical requirements of the client.
We use commercial and open-source simulation packages (e.g. COMSOL, ANSYS, OpenFOAM, Elmer) in addition to our own specialized code to translate customers’ goals into mathematical models, perform physical simulations, and optimise systems and processes. We offer parametric, shape, and topological optimization, covering both geometry variations and simple parameters. The finite element method (FEM) is typically used for systems modelling, while for optimization we employ gradient-free algorithms, such as Nelder-Mead, COBYLA, BOBYQA, MMA, SNOPT.
