What is the figure_of_merit in the inequality constraint options??
 
Hi Guys

I noticed that there is a new selection in the inequality constraint within SU2 optimizaiton seetings, which is figure_of_merit?

What is it? Could anybody tell me that ?

Hi,

The figure of merit is something that has been used in the past for rotor calculations, and it involves the thrust and torque coefficients. It is fairly specific to rotor flows.

Hope this helps,
Tom
