Hi all, i have some doubts about setting the COMSOL optimization module.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My aim is quite simple, i should find the optimal value of a variable to minimize the objective equation.

In particular i should set up the parameter C in this equation(which represents the outlet pressure of a laminar flow model):

S=Q*C+po

in order to minimize the following equation:

abs(p-15000)

Where p is the pressure coming out from linear flow model (spf) and 15000 is a reference pressure, both applied to domain.

The algorithm is quite simple, comsol should:

1)assign a value to C

2)estimate the value of domain pressure( coming out from laminar flow model)

3)verify if optimality condition is satisfied, otherwise start again from 1

My doubt is about implementation: which kind of objective should i use (integral objective, probe objective...)? Should i use inequality constraints too?

Best regards
