Parametric modeling of a propulsive system

Parametric modeling and optimization of a marine propulsive system using STAR-CCM+, OPTIMATE+ and CAESES

The aim of the study is to generate a fully-parametric marine propeller and propulsion system geometry to optimize the efficiency of the propeller using STAR-CCM+ and Optimate+ by CD-adapco.

Optimizing a marine propulsive system is a difficult task mainly caused by the complexity of the propeller geometry and its parametrization.
