Title:Aerodynamic Design Optimization by A Continuous Adjoint Method
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Feng Liu, University of California, Irvine (Host: J Xu)

Abstract:
I will present our latest research progress on the development of a continuous adjoint method to perform aerodynamic design optimization of wings and turbomachinery blade rows. This method requires only about twice the computational effort of flow calculation to obtain the complete gradient information at each operating condition, regardless of the number of design parameters. Therefore, it is orders-of-magnitude more efficient than a conventional finite-difference method for obtaining the gradient information in a optimization procedure when the design parameters are in the hundreds and more. Examples of single and multiple-point design of transonic wings and turbomachinery blade rows will be presented.
