In meteorology and oceanography, combining a model with data isa crucial task. Several methods have been developed for data assimilation. Sequential methods put a model in a state which is, in general, not consistent with its dynamics.

http://fun3d.larc.nasa.gov What to Expect •Cost of design optimization is very problem-dependent, but in general you can expect to spend ~10 times the cost of a flow solution to get reasonable improvements, depending on how "good" the baseline is •Generally see very rapid improvements ...
