Coupling STAR-CCM+ with IOSO Optimization Software by the Example of an 8-Stage Axial Jet Engine Compressor

The task of this work is to develop a procedure for integration of IOSO optimization software package with STAR-CCM+ CFD-code. The example here shows optimization of the flow controling guide vanes of the first two compressor stages. The aim is to improve the engine's performance and provide the methodology to improve other engine's components. The CFD model is prepared in Turbo Wizard and involves java scripting for calculation of the objective function and tuning design parameters.
