ESTECO announced that there is a new interface between its process integration and optimization softare, modeFRONTIER, and Optimal Solutions' SCULPTOR mesh morphing software. According to the company, the integration will make it easier to set up DOE and optimization studies for computation fluid dynamics (CFD).
While running SCULPTOR from within modeFRONTIER's environment has been possible for many years using text files and scripts, the new integration node provides a seamless interface which allows the user to introspect the SCULPTOR model file to identify the parameters of interest. Once these have been selected, the "auto build" feature within the node automatically creates a modeFRONTIER workflow, together with all the required connections, leaving the user just to define the parameter bounds, and to select the best algorithm for the study.
