This system consists of modules: pre- and post-processor Patran, and solver Nastran. In order to solve multi-objective optimization task by means of such CAE system, the creation of a geometrical and numerical model as well as the calculation of the fitness functional have to be fully automated.
The most important aspects of the model were the NASTRAN MAT4 material properties, and the convection approximation.
