An adjoint-based design methology for CFD problems. (English) Zbl 1078.76057
Summary: A complete CFD design methodology is presented. The main components of this methodology are a general edge-based compressible/incompressible flow solver; a continuous adjoint formulation for the gradient computations; a steepest descent technique for the change of design variables; evaluation of the gradient of the discretized flow equations with respect to mesh by finite differences; a CAD-free pseudo-shell surface parametrization, allowing every point on the surface to be optimized to be used as a design parameter; and a level type scheme for the movement of the interior points. Several examples are included to demonstrate the methodology developed.
