Response Expression

Derives a response using a mathematical expression involving other responses and design variables.

Figure 1. Response Type – Response Expression

Input Description
Response Expression The solver expression or function containing symbols defined in Response Definition.
Response Definition Use this field to assign symbols to design variables and response variables used in above Response Expression.
Factor A value by which the value of the response expression will be multiplied.

Turn ON the Use plot check box in order to monitor and plot this response during an optimization run.

In the above example, the response variable computes an expression (Grashof Constant T1) involving distances between points whose coordinates are design variables.
