Fluent Adjoint Method Optimization Parametric Study

    • eklein12
      I have been using ANSYS Fluent's Adjoint method optimizer for 2D flow over a cylinder with great results. However, I would like to somewhat automate the process if possible
      Is there a way to set up some type of parametric study with the adjoint solver similar to how you can set up parametric studies in workbench? i.e. I would like to run the optimization solver for a certain case, save the results, revert back to the initial case but change a single parameter such as a boundary condition (for example change inlet velocity BC from 1m/s to 2 m/s). I've started to look a bit into ACT and the Automatic Shape Optimization v3 tool which is available for download, but I currently don't see a way to achieve a parametric study as I am describing with these tools. I could be missing something and any help is appreciated!
      Thank You!

      You can use journal and scheme commands to automate the process in Fluent. You can find more information about journal and scheme commands below.
