Computational shell for inverse modeling and optimisation

The optimisation shell INVERSE is a general purpose code for solving a wide range of optimisation and inverse problems. It offers a set of optimisation algorithms and other tools, which are accessible through a flexible user interface implemented as a file interpreter. The shell can be connected to different simulation programmes that are capable of direct analyses of components and processes under consideration. Its applicability is not is not restricted to finite element simulation codes.

In the SCANMAP project, the computational shell INVERSE has been applied to design aspects in can pre-form manufacture and shaping in conjunction with ELFEN finite element code. The capabilities of the shell have been enhanced to take into account multiple objective functions related to can strength and to optimise tool design parameters related to final can shape and volume.

Status: A set of specific industrial cases has been solved to demonstrate applicability of the computational shell in the design of can shaping process.
