Parameter Link Introduction


Linear parameter linking in OpenVSP is establishing a linear relationship between any two parameters according to a scale and offset by B = A*Scale + Offset where B is the dependent variable and A is the independent or driving variable. Setting up a linear link is relatively simple. Users may choose parameters from the dropdown menus or drag-and-drop a parameter onto the Parm A or Parm B variable selections and then click the Add Link button. All linear links will be displayed under the Parm Link List header. Note that you should use Links when specific linear relationships, including equality, are needed in your model but should avoid linking every parameter by default. As with many features in OpenVSP, less is often more.
