An all-at-once approach for the optimal control of the unsteady Burgers equation

Yilmaz, Fikriye
Karasözen, Bülent
We apply an all-at-once method for the optimal control of the unsteady Burgers equation. The nonlinear Burgers equation is discretized in time using the semi-implicit discretization and the resulting first order optimality conditions are solved iteratively by Newton's method. The discretize then optimize approach is used, because it leads to a symmetric indefinite saddle point problem. Numerical results for the distributed unconstrained and control constrained problems illustrate the performance of the all-at-once approach with semi-implicit time discretization.


A discontinuous Galerkin method for optimal control problems governed by a system of convection-diffusion PDEs with nonlinear reaction terms
Yücel, Hamdullah; BENNER, Peter (2015-11-01)
In this paper, we study the numerical solution of optimal control problems governed by a system of convection-diffusion PDEs with nonlinear reaction terms, arising from chemical processes. The symmetric interior penalty Galerkin (SIPG) method with upwinding for the convection term is used as a discretization method. We use a residual-based error estimator for the state and the adjoint variables. An adaptive mesh refinement indicated by a posteriori error estimates is applied. The arising saddle point system...
Sensitivity analysis approach for reduced-order approximations of optimal control problems governed by Burgers equation
Akman, Tuğba (Wiley, 2016-12-01)
The reduced-order model of the optimal control problem governed by Burgers equation is derived using the proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) method. The reduced-order solution depending on parameters, which are different from the nominal values, may not be accurate if the POD basis functions depending on the nominal values are used to derive the reduced-order model. It is known that Burgers equation is sensitive to the perturbations in the diffusion term, so we use the sensitivity information to improve t...

In this study, the viscous Burgers equation is studied both theoretically and numerically. Before introducing our model of interest, we provide a brief historical concept of the equation where we also remind the reader some basic concepts of the partial differential equations. Here the linear advection equation, the solution of which is a particular case of first order quasilinear partial differential equations, is taken into account as an example. The solutions of the inviscid Burgers equation follows by s...
An Approach for determining process economy parameters of multivariate loss functions
Özkan, Gökçe; Köksal, Gülser; Department of Industrial Engineering (2016)
The aim of this study is to provide an effective method for determining parameters of multivariate loss functions, which are related with process economics. The loss functions are widely used in product and process design and other quality engineering applications. Although there are several studies about different types of loss functions, there is a lack of studies on determining cost matrix parameters of these functions. For this purpose, we propose a method based on multi-objective decision making tools....
Inviscid burgers equations and its numerical solutions
Oyar, Nazmi; Okutmuştur, Baver; Department of Mathematics (2017)
In this work, we consider the Burgers equation with zero viscosity term which is called the inviscid Burgers equation. We analyzed this equation both theoretically and numerically through this study. Firstly, we solve this equation analytically by means of characteristic method since it is in the class of quasilinear partial differential equation. Then, initial value problems for this equation subject to continuous and discontinuous initial conditions are studied. We used three different numerical schemes n...
