Dear all, I would need to a
I would need to apply Genetic Algorithms optimisation to optimise a 2D airfoil shape.
The main problem that I am facing is to mesh the airfoil and moreover to use the mesh from one shape to another in order to reduce the computational expenses (GA involves a lot of evaluations.
Due to this is an academic study ( I am an MSc student) I am not allowed to use commercial software, so I would need to mesh with BlockMesh or another free software.
I have read in one thread (http://www.cfd-online.com/cgi-bin/Op...cus/discus.cgi ) that BlockMesh is suitable for most 2D cases but in another thread (http://www.cfd-online.com/cgi-bin/Op...cus/discus.cgi ) seems to be the opposite.
Is there any way to do this with BlockMesh or any free software easy to use? Is there any database or any test case than can give me an example or a mesh that I could use?
Please, I would be very grateful if you give me some information, help or advice, I am really worried about this.
Well, in fact what I have to d
Well, in fact what I have to do is to apply the GA optimisation to some 2D shape related with aerodynamics, so if you think there is another posibility easier than the airfoil,please let me know.
I know about a commercial soft
I know about a commercial software that can give change shape as parameter. Try Hypermesh morphing from Altair.
What about the files conteined
What about the files conteined in links as http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/wind/val.../raetaf01.html ? are this grids suitable to use in OpenFOAM? Could I use them to run some airfoil example?
Please, just a quick yes or not would be very helpful for me.
Sorry but the post before was
Sorry but the post before was not complete. I know there is a converter utility: plot3dToFoam and I think it is ok for using the files that are included in the link that I was speaking about before. Is that right? does it means that the mesh would be generate just with this file?Thank you very much.
I am working with genetic algorithms used for optimization of turbine blades could someone recommend a good book or an article please!!!
Thank you very much
your question is my demand too, i am very glad if give me any advise
Gas Turbine optimization
First the thesis most recently it was written for ÖZHAN ÖKSÜZ is a Doctoral thsesis (MULTIPLOID GENETIC ALGORITHMS FOR MULTI-OBJECTIVE
TURBINE BLADE AERODYNAMIC OPTIMIZATION December 2007)
This is my best reference, he use 2 diferents fitness funtion; I use only one
If you dont Kwon anithyng about Genetc Algorithms first you have to read
Introduction to Genetic Algorithms S.N Sivanandam S.N. Deepa
And its important that you define 3D or 2D meshs
Those are my recommendations!!
Another reference would be my Masters thesis but I will end this year!!
tax a lot for your quickly response dear Eduardo :) i am waiting for your master thesis :)
i gone optimize blade surface, do you know a bout this with OpenFOAM? or how do it with OF?
I use GAMBIT to ceate my meshes and Turbo Volumens ; and I simulate in ANSYS 12.1 using Non-reflecting boundary conditions; for the chock wave
