Shape optimization of a crash box using HyperMorph and LS-OPT software is studied by Wang [9].
Morphing capabilities were introduced in powerful CAE preprocessing systems such as HyperMorph (Altair Engineering), ANSA (BETA CAE System), ANSYS ParaMesh (ANSYS Inc.), where specialized modules are now tested and enhanced, pointing out the importance of this modeling technique for the industry.
