1. What is COSP

COSP comprises a set of subroutines attached to PHOENICS for the purpose of solving so-called "inverse problems", such as:

  1. Determining what values of constants in empirically-based physical models, utilised by PHOENICS, best fit a prescribed set of experimental data.
  2. What geometrical or boundary-condition input data or sources and sinks will cause the predicted performance of some equipment to be closest to some desired specification.
