Get on the innovation fast track with VR&D's software.
VR&D's optimization software allows engineers and designers to optimize their designs quickly by automatically changing specified design parameters. By using VR&D software, users gain insight into their analyses. This "fast track" to engineering intuition regularly leads to innovation through optimization.
VR&D was founded in 1984 by Dr. Garret Vanderplaats, who is recognized world-wide as one of the original creators of numerical optimization techniques. His original CONMIN (1972) and ADS (1984) software codes are still in use today by some companies to add optimization to their products. VR&D software and their third-party CAE partners all utilize his premier DOT and BIGDOT optimizers for the latest advances in optimization technology. VR&D develops robust, state-of-the-art FEA and design optimization software that enhances the product development process and is used world-wide by aerospace, automotive, other commercial and government institutions, and universities.
Multidiscipline Design Optimization Software VisualDOC is general-purpose, graphics based, multidiscipline design optimization software that allows the user to add optimization to almost any design task. Design study and optimization options include: DOE, Gradient and Non-gradient, Response surface, Probabilistic and Robust optimization, Post-processing visualization tools etc. The graphical user interface couples with one or more analysis programs to generate the design study system.
Structural Analysis and Optimization Software GENESIS was designed from the start to be a fully integrated analysis and optimization program based on the latest research by Vanderplaats. Analysis capabilities include: Statics, Normal Modes, Heat Transfer, and Dynamic Response. Optimization includes topology, topometry, topography, sizing, shape, and freeform optimization.
Design Studio is a pre- and post-processor graphical interface enabling users to display FEMs and easily create GENESIS design data. One of the newest plug-in features seamlessly couples large-scale GENESIS structural optimization with LS-DYNA nonlinear analyses via the Equivalent Static Loads (ESL) method.
VR&D exists for the development of optimization technologies for industrial applications. The company goal has always been to provide the best software and have the best staff of experts in the optimization world. This allows their clients to produce better products in less time and at lower cost than ever before.
