    For optimisation you need a cfd code you can trust and also is quick.
    The simplest hull cfd code is Dave Egan's Flowlogic. It is also fast so perfect to couple with optimisation codes such as modefrontier etc

    Hi Alexnov,
    I did a lot of research into Friendship Framework Caeses and how to couple it with SU2. I posted on the SU2 site looking for help and this was picked up by the Caeses developers who kindly prepared a good tutorial - http://www.friendship-systems.com/forum/index.php?/topic/313-su2-caeses-coupling/ - the concepts discussed in here also apply to coupling with OpenFoam. I hope this is useful to you and indeed others using this great forum.
    Kind regards
    Paul
