In the technical textile industry an objective of the airlay process is the production of high quality nonwoven fabrics with the minimal use of fiber raw material. Since a process simulation of the multi-scale two-phase problem is very computationally expensive, we deduce an efficiently evaluable surrogate model to handle the multi-criteria optimization task.
