Good knowledge of CAE simulation is preferred as well as basic knowledge of CAD modelling. Some experience using CAESES is required, and it is preferred that you have completed the introductory course SE-31 or that you have gone through the first two sections of tutorials.
SE-32 Simulation-driven shape optimization with CAESES - Advanced
The course includes advanced topics relevant to your specific application. Examples include advanced meta-surface modelling (such as for ship hulls, turbomachinery blades and volutes, aerodynamic bodies, etc.), transformation of existing geometries, feature scripting, coupling to your specific CFD or CAE tools, and setting up the automation process. By the end of the course, you will have the ability to create the automatic optimization set-up for your industrial project.
Learn how to use advanced techniques in CAESES to perform automated shape optimization studies. Typical examples include reducing the resistance of your hull-form, maximizing the efficiency of your pump, lowering the pressure losses through your duct or manifold, or improving the sea-keeping behaviour of your offshore platform.
CAE engineers who have a solid background in simulation (e.g. CFD, FEA, seakeeping) and are using these codes to drive their mechanical or hydrodynamic designs.
