Abstract : This paper introduces the optimized design of aircraft hatch lock using topology optimization powered by ANSYS workbench. This can be achieved by 3D modeling of hatch lock in any of the software like CAE, FEA etc., where the models can be imported to the workbench. The main aim of this technique is to reduce the weight of the material without affecting the factor of safety and improving the efficiency of the hatch lock without compromising the strength of the material. Topology optimization includes section of material area where there is no stress acting or minimum stress acting in it. This technique gives advantage of reducing the material area by topology optimizing it and reduction in weight to increase the efficiency of the product. This paper presents topology optimization of aircraft hatch lock, which resulted in the weight reduction without affecting the component strength and other factors.
