Appendix H

Meta4abq is a toolbox for successive surrogate based optimization of nite element models parameterized using Abaqus/CAE. An optimization is dened by a project le which is opened and executed from the toolbox. A DoE (doe4meta.txt) is prepared and loaded by the Python script dening the nite element model. The Python script is executed in Abaqus/CAE and the nite element results are then exported to result4meta.txt. A surrogate model is adopted to the results and the optimization is performed. After convergence, a new region of interest is identied by panning and zooming, and a new successive optimization loop is initiated. The successive optimization procedure is also illustrated in Figure H.1.
