how can use an optimization algorithm(like ant colony,swarm,genetic algorithm) to OF so that it can change and modify the geometry (blockMeshDict) according to the result of solution (cl,cd of naca0012 airfoil)
And in the way the algorithm dictate.
I want to know general process of doing that.
How the algorithm code can be add to OF?
Is it a very difficult work?
For example Is it suitable for Phd thesis?
Any guidance,idea,experience,link or only hint and just thought is really appreciated.
Thanks.
