Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis is widely used in engineering. Although CFD calculations are accurate, the computational cost associated with complex systems makes it difficult to obtain empirical equations between system variables. Here we combine active learning (AL) and symbolic regression (SR) to get a symbolic equation for system variables from CFD simulations. Gaussian process regression-based AL allows for automated selection of variables by selecting the most instructive… Expand
