Abstract

One of the most crucial parts of any drone is the frame. In this research, we use ANSYS topology optimization to optimize the frame design in order to lighten its weight. Drone frame design is geared to bear big loads while having a light frame. Consequently, less material will be used, and the drone’s performance will be enhanced. Due to its inherent advantage of deployment at the appropriate places, unmanned aerial systems, more often known as drones, have found important usage in the aerospace, strategic, and civil sectors. Drone utilisation is rising significantly over the world, especially for civil and defense operations, as a result of their many benefits. Drone development has become possible for a wide range of applications, thanks to technological breakthroughs in drone manufacturing, navigation, and control systems. UAVs are used for a variety of scientific and research purposes in a variety of settings, including the remote monitoring of wildlife and analysis of various environmental data. Extracting volume data from quarries, inspecting plants for precision agriculture, using communication antenna, and inspecting power lines are a few further applications.
