X-Opt Extreme Optimisation

X-Opt is a state-of-the-art genetic algorithm to reduce component stress, improve stiffness, and increase fatigue life.

The example on the right shows a rectangular beam section being optimised to unify stresses.


Product fatigue lives can be improved using this tool. The example below left shows a 1.2kg reduction in mass while maintaining the wheel's durability.

Complex models with many load cases can be improved by the algorithm.
