Hello everyone,
I would like to create a shape optimization of a simple geometry (submarine) with an interface between OF and Dakota.
A this stage of the work I need to move the points of the mesh knowing :
-the displacement of the submarine-boundary-points completely
-the displacement of some "control points" (cheaper in term of time)
But I do not found tutorial or documentation that explain me how to do that.
Someone can help me?
Thanks a lot,

elvis will become famous soon enough

there is a very little discussion at

Do you use JAGUAR to create the Dakota input deck file?

Thanks Elvis,
but the discussion does not help me too much.
In this moment I need help just in the OF world, the link between the two code is already done.
Anyway, I do not use Jaguar (to be honest I never tried the interface with Dakota).
