The primary purpose of finite element stress analysis is to estimate the reliability of engineering designs. In structural applications, the von Mises stress due to a given load is often used as the metric for evaluating design margins. For deterministic loads, both static and dynamic, the calculation of von Mises stress is straightforward [2]. For random(More)
A large scale optimization of an electronics package has been completed using a massively parallel structural dynamics code. The optimization goals were to maximize safety margins for stress and acceleration resulting from transient impulse loads, while remaining within strict mass limits. The optimization process utilized nongradient, gradient, and(More)
