Hello All,

Is it possible to constrain FFD Box deformation in a specific direction?
I mean, I want to allow the FFD Box to move in the -(negative)Z direction but not in the +(positive)Z direction.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

Hi Umuteng,

Yes. I always suggest manually creating the DEFINITION_DV field. When you do, you can specify exactly the grid deformation you want to perform -> heres part of an example from SU2's tutorials suite:

DEFINITION_DV= ( 11, 1.0 | UPPER_SIDE, LOWER_SIDE, TIP | WING, 0, 1, 0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0 );

This FFD design variable with the FFD coordinates of (0,1,0) will only deform in the +Z directions (0.0,0.0,1.0) as defined by the last three arguments.

If you want your variables to be constrained to -Z your arguments would like:
DEFINITION_DV= ( 11, 1.0 | UPPER_SIDE, LOWER_SIDE, TIP | WING, 0, 1, 0, 0.0, 0.0, -1.0 );

Best,
Wally
