OpenFOAM® Tutorials about DAKOTA® Coupling

Design or quantity optimization is very powerful if one uses the combination of a computation fluid dynamics toolbox and an optimization library. The training cases provide an overview how to couple OpenFOAM® and DAKOTA® for two arbitrary cases. It is demonstrated how the interface of DAKOTA® has to be set-up. The main goal is to demonstrate only the coupling mechanism. The functionalities of the open source library DAKOTA is not discussed. Further information can be checked out in the official and very powerful user manual at the Sandia's National Government website.
