I am working on the optimization of ducted propulsor for underwater vehicle. I have parametrized the geometry of the propeller and stator. Then I generated and exported number of geometries using Sobol sequence. Then I ran CFD simulation for all these geometries externally and extracted the required results. I do not have the complete optimization framework setup in CAESES.
I would like to know
1. If I can use Dakota optimization toolkit for performing sensitivity analysis or response surface generation. I have an excel file which contains the design variable (generated by Sobol) and the results of CFD simulation.
