Hello everyone, I have just started learning how to use DesignXplorer. My geometry is a simple pipe with three outlets on the side and one at the end of the pipe:

There are several ways to optimize this kind of problem, the following list is not exhaustive (sorted by preference):
define a derived parameter:
sum_of_squares = (FR1-FR2)^2+(FR1-FR3)^2
and define a single objective problem to minimizesum_of_squares
/////////////////////////
define derived parameters:
max_fr = max(FR1,FR2,FR3)
min_fr = min(FR1,FR2,FR3)
ratio = max_fr/min_fr : soratio>=1
and define a single objective problem to minimize ratio to be close to 1
//////////////////////////
define derived parameters:
ratio_12 = FR1/FR2
ratio_23 = FR2/FR3
and define a single-objective problem with seek target 1 forratio_12and with constraints0.98<=ratio_23<=1.02 (range to be define)
///////////////////////////
define derived parameters:
ratio_12 = FR1/FR2
ratio_23 = FR2/FR3
and define a multi-objective problem with seek target 1 forratio_12andratio_23
