Default Optimization Work
Posts: n/a

I am doing an optimization work and i need to simulate the flow into a cavity. I will simulate that on fluent. An after i need to export the data to an optimization algorithm.

Is possible to export and read those data on matlab, for example?

Or the easiest way to do that is to implement and algorithm in fortran in UDF?

Best Regards

I think that the best way is an UDF in which every parameter you need to pass back to your optimization algorithm is written on a different file. It will be very simple to read the data from your algorithm.

Anyway, if your amount of data is huge and/or for some reason you need necessarily MATLAB, you can still use an UDF to write your data on a file, all together, and MATLAB will read nearly everything you write on it.

Just to share with you that in the next release of FLUENT which will be hosted on the ANSYS workbench framework, you should be able to use ANSYS' high performance optimisation tool called DesignXplorer. Contact your FLEUNT supplier for more info regarding this.
