MAC - Optimization Tab

Set up and submit optimization runs by creating design variables, constraints, and objectives for improving MAC and reducing frequency mismatch between the reference and correlation models.

Design Variable Selection

Select Design Variables by loading the model file associated with correlation result set (H3D or OP2), then select the design variables to be used for optimization.

Figure 2.


Filter and select the modes to maximize the MAC value as an objective for optimization.

Figure 3.


Filter and select the modes for which constraints are to be maintained for MAC values and frequencies.
