Aerodynamic sensitivity analysis in inverse design

2000-12-01
Kocabiçak, E.
Eyi, Sinan
The effects of sensitivity analysis on the performance of aerodynamic design were evaluated. Sensitivities were obtained by both analytical and finite-difference approach. A sensitivity code was developed to analytically obtain sensitivities using the material derivative concept of continuum mechanics. Several design optimizations were performed to evaluate the merits of the analytical approach in comparison with the finite-difference approach. The results show that the analytical approach provides accurate sensitivities consistently, improves the convergence of the design cycle, and hence reduces the design cost. © 2000 The Amarican Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc.

Aerodynamic design optimization of three dimensional rocket nozzles using adjoint method
Eyi, Sinan (null; 2013-09-13)
A design optimization method based on three dimensional Euler equations is developed. A finite volume method is implemented to discretize the Euler equations. Newton's method is used to solve the discretized form of Euler equations. Newton's method requires the calculation of the Jacobian matrix which is the derivative of the residual vector with respect to the flux vector. Different upwind methods are used in the calculation of flux vectors. Numerical and analytical methods are utilized in the evaluation o...
Adjoint based design optimization of subsonic airfoils with a panel code
Sarıkaya, Berk; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2022-7-25)
An in-house panel code written in Fortran is automatically differentiated and developed into an adjoint-based aerodynamic shape optimization tool for airfoil profiles. The automatic differentiation tool, FDOT, is employed in reverse mode to obtain the discrete-adjoint solver. The adjoint-based sensitivity derivatives (i.e. gradient vector) are validated against the finite difference approach. The computed sensitivity derivatives are then employed for the gradient based aerodynamic shape optimization of subs...
