Could anyone tell/help me with either

A. How to use Goal Driven Optimization (Ansys)
B. How to use Shape Optimization (Ansys)
C. How to write a UDF file to use with the mesh morpher/optimizer in Fluent

Goal: Optimize the shape of an aircraft to minimize drag.

P.S. I'm very new to Ansys.

I'd settle for someone helping me out on how to define shape parameters. Wingspan, length? How do you get these things to show up as parameters?
