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+.

Pipe length [100…1000] mm

Pipe radius [10…100]mm

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

Minimize Pressure

Differential Evolution

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