Optimization with DAKOTA®
Geometric Variation Optimization | OpenFOAM® and DAKOTA®
Optimization tasks are the state of the art to optimize the design for the operating point. To prevent different modeling scenarios manually, the free software tool DAKOTA® can be used to automize the optimization task. This training case shows the coupling of both software tools, DAKOTA®, and OpenFOAM®.
Teslas One-Way-Valve Optimization | OpenFOAM® and DAKOTA®
Nowadays, a wide range of applications needs to be evaluated for a working point and, therefore, be designed for optimal operation. Analysis of different designs or flow parameters can be intensive work, while the data analysis is not easy. To reduce manual labor, highly advanced optimization methods - implemented in DAKOTA® - can be used in combination with OpenFOAM®. This training case shows how to couple both software tools, DAKOTA®, and OpenFOAM®.
