Automated geometry optimization using FLOW-3D Cast and CAESES

Please join us for a live webinar on August 25 at 1:00 pm EST that will demonstrate how you can bring your simulation-driven design to the next level using FLOW-3D Cast along with the optimization software, CAESES. Looking at a gravity casting process, we will illustrate optimization techniques, including geometrical changes, in order to find the ideal configuration for the runner system that satisfies objectives like minimizing defects in the final part.

Optimization, especially, geometry optimization, is an integral part of any design process that incorporates simulation. Flow Science and Friendship Systems have partnered to offer FLOW-3D, FLOW-3D Cast and FLOW-3D/MP users a push-button solution within CAESES that eliminates the manual process of optimization, removes the guess work for the user of what values and parameters to test out, and in the case of geometry optimization, allows users to manipulate their CAD and geometry files within the CAESES environment.

The built-in parametric CAD kernel is geared towards watertight simulation-ready geometries that can easily be varied, be it STL data, CAD models imported from other CAD programs, or geometry defined in CAESES from the ground up. Running FLOW-3D Cast from within CAESES for assessing the geometry is a seamlessly implemented solution. Control files are simply dragged and dropped into CAESES’s integration interface – and once CAD and CFD are linked, formal optimization is the next natural step. Every thinkable optimization technique – from simple systematic variation techniques via evolutionary strategies to the application of sophisticated surrogate models – is made available through CAESES. These algorithms can readily be applied to other FLOW-3D Cast input variables in order to achieve single or multiple objectives.
