stormspirit is on a distinguished road
Hi guys , I have a problem with my paper work in my university and its in the motorbike tutorial of the OpenFoam. My goal is to minimize the force in human head by CONTROLLING and CHANGING the geometry in the FAIRING of the bike using a "BOX" with control points . so in other words I need to find the perfect geometry via mesh moving! the problem is how exactly I can communicate the "box" with the objective function because they are not in the same geometry??? my objective function is on the head and if I had the 'box' there too would be easy to solve it, so I am stuck...I would appreciate any information you can give me
