This demo illustrates the connection between KIMEME and STAR-CCM+. The project optimizes the aspect ratio of a pipe, charged with a pressure due to a given air flow. Both geometry and FEM analysis are carried on by STAR-CCM+.

DESIGN VARIABLES

Pipe length [100…1000] mm

Pipe radius [10…100]mm

CONSTRAINTS

The velocity vector of the air flow is considered normal to the inlet section of the pipe

OBJECTIVES

Minimize Pressure

OPTIMIZATION ALGORITHM

Differential Evolution

RUNS

2000 evaluations, with parallel execution on 4 workstations using KIMEME Network. Execution time: 30 minutes.
