Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics (NNFM) book series (NNFM, volume 44)


The optimization package OPTIM3D has been extensively tested within an industrial environment. Conclusions concerning single-block and multi-blocks optimization are given. The tuning of the parameters is synthetically explained. Operationnal procedures for improving the efficiency of the program are proposed.
