Training Course: Shape Optimization of CFD Applications

Tuesday, September 27
Fluent Training Center, Ann Arbor, MI, USA
8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This course is designed to teach FLUENT users how to conduct shape optimization of CFD applications.  Users will execute the following in a 'step-by-step' fashion:

  • Import an existing FLUENT model into MeshWorks/MORPHER and parameterize it for a number of shape parameters. After the parameterization, the user will save the model as a 'parametric' FLUENT model.
  • Set up an optimization plan in iSIGHT to execute the following tasks automatically:
    • Supply new parameter values to the optimization loop
    • Execute MeshWorks/MORPHER in batch mode to automatically generate a new running model from the 'parametric' FLUENT model
    • Automatically extract output parameter values such as pressure drop, velocities etc.
    • Set up constraints for the output parameters
    • Set up ranges for input parameters
    • Set up objective to optimize for (such as maximizing flow rates etc.)
  • Set up a DOE plan in iSIGHT using the input shape parameter ranges.
  • Automatically execute the DOE plan for creating new designs, executing them and extracting the results.
  • Select the best DOE design.
  • Using the results, create a 'Response Surface Model' (RSM).
  • Optimize using the RSM.


This course is recommended for anyone who wants to perform shape optimization of CFD problems. A working knowledge of FLUENT, MeshWorks/MORPHER, and iSIGHT is required.
