Airfoil Optimization

In this part of the tutorial, we will go through an example of an airfoil optimization. The process is similar to that of the previous sections, but less complicated.

Here are a few of the items we will cover in the following pages:

  • Generate an airfoil mesh to be used for optimization

  • Parametrize the 2D airfoil using the Free-form Deformation method

  • Run a single-point aerodynamic shape optimization

  • Run a multi-point aerodynamic shape optimization
