Aerodynamic Web Forming: Pareto-Optimized Mass Distribution
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.
