Hi everybody, I recently tried my hands on integrating CAESES with fluent and i think its worth sharing for those who work with fluent and will like to use CAESES parametric models. Please find attached a copy of my project file. its a simple meta-surface elbow i designed with an ellipse curve.Functions for the "width and "height" of the curve are defined. you can have a look at how parameters are set from function curves. I used ICEMCFD as my meshing tool and Fluent as CFD solver. specific files such as the *.rpl and *.jou were used as input files( checkout the attachments). Absolute paths should be changed to relative paths via "getdesigndir()...." (not all paths are necessary!). A *.bat file, RunFluent.bat, was used to run both ICEMCFD and Fluent in batch mode. Snapshots, graphs etc from fluent can be included as results files for post processing. Details on post processing can be found in CAESES tutorials " getting started". You can have a look. Suggestions are welcome. Best regards, Richard "N.B: CAESES is one of the most powerful softwares for tight integration with CFD softwares for DoE and Optimization. All you need to know is to understand how your External CFD software handles its files to know exactly which input and result files to use. it must also have the capability of running in batch mode."

Hi together, Please note that CAESES can be utilized as an OpenFOAM GUI (Graphical User Interface). There are free academic versions of the CAESES pro edition for students and PhD students as well as trial licenses with flexible time frames. There are also special editions for small companies, start-ups and freelancers. Compared to other tools in the market, CAESES is good at automation, i.e. if you already have an existing OpenFOAM setup and you want to analyze design variants of your product, then CAESES might be a perfect choice. Especially, if geometry variation plays a major role. In contrast to that, a tool such as HELYX-OS might be a better choice e.g. if you would like to set up an OpenFOAM case from scratch. Here are some CAESES-specific offers: Conveniently configure and manipulate template files (e.g. controlDict or any other ASCII file) in the GUIChange your geometry design and trigger OpenFOAM with a single mouse-click for analysis (i.e. streamline your design process / automation)Use your individual result values such as pressure loss or homogeneity for an objective function in design studies and shape optimizationsPostprocess your simulation data (streamlines, contour plots etc) Here is a video that shows some of the features in CAESES.
