Design and Optimization Studies

HyperStudy enables you to perform automated design or optimization studies for CFD applications.

Using the morphing capabilities of HyperMesh, several shape variations can be generated which are used further on as design variables. In each optimization step, HyperStudy runs a CFD analysis with a certain mesh variation. Based on the results, intelligent optimization algorithms decide which shape variation will be investigated in the next step. The optimization loop has to be initialized once and will run in an automated manner until the optimal design is found or the maximum number of iteration steps are reached.

The following section gives an overview of CFD design and optimization studies with HyperWorks. For a more comprehensive discussion of all HyperStudy capabilities, please see the HyperStudy documentation.
