This paper presents an implementation of discrete adjoint solver using an automatic differentiation tool for a two-dimensional Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) finite volume solver. Moreover, automatic differentiation tool is also utilized calculating flux Jacobian required by implicit finite volume solver. The developed RANS adjoint solver is computationally efficient and accurate. In the present implementation, the time required for the calculation of adjoint variables is comparable to the time required for one iteration of the flow solver. The RANS adjoint is verified with a brute force method. Finally, the aerodynamic shape optimization capability of the developed RANS adjoint solver is demonstrated by optimizing a RAE 2822 airfoil in terms of drag at constant lift coefficient.


Development of an incompressible navier-stokes solver with alternating cell direction implicit method on structured and unstructured quadrilateral grids
Baş, Onur; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2007)
In this research, the Alternating Cell Direction Implicit method is used in temporal discretisation of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations and compared with the well known and widely used Point Gauss Seidel scheme on structured and quadrilateral unstructured meshes. A two dimensional, laminar and incompressible Navier-Stokes solver is developed for this purpose using the artificial compressibility formulation. The developed solver is used to obtain steady-state solutions with implicit time stepping m...
Applications of hybrid discrete Fourier transform-moment method to the fast analysis of large rectangular dipole arrays printed on a thin grounded dielectric substrate
Chou, HT; Ko, HK; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET (2002-08-05)
Recently a discrete Fourier transform-method of moments (DFT-MoM) scheme was developed for fast analysis of electrically large rectangular planar dipole arrays, which has been shown to be very efficient in terms of number reduction of unknown variables and computational complexity. The applications of this DFT-MoM to treat dipole arrays printed on a grounded dielectric substrate are examined in this Letter. Numerical results are presented to validate its efficiency and accuracy. (C) 2002 Wiley Periodicals, ...
Development of an Intelligent Least Squares Based Linear Controller for Autonomous Helicopters
Kubali, Eser; Yavrucuk, İlkay (2016-06-10)
In this paper, a novel PID gain update law using linear least squares regression is introduced as an adaptive control method for autonomous helicopters. In addition, prediction analysis is conducted for error dynamics of the closed loop system using recursive linear least squares regression. Combining these two concepts with classical PID controller, an intelligent PID controller is obtained. A flight controller with three control loops is developed to demonstrate the capabilities of the controller. Finally...
A New Beamformer Design Method for Multi-Group Multicasting by Enforcing Constructive Interference
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2018-08-07)
In this paper, we propose a new multi-group multi-cast beamforming design method for phase shift keying (PSK) modulated signals. Quality of service (QoS)-aware optimization is considered where the aim is to minimize transmission power of multiple-antenna base station under the QoS constraints of single-antenna users. In this paper, we show that symbol-level beamforming scheme proposed in the literature is not an effective design method for multi-group multicasting and modify it using rotated constellation a...
Improving the big bang-big crunch algorithm for optimum design of steel frames
Hasançebi, Oğuzhan (null; 2012-01-01)
This paper presents an improved version of the big bang-big crunch (BB-BC) algorithm namely exponential BB-BC algorithm (EBB-BC) for optimum design of steel frames according to ASD-AISC provisions. It is shown that the standard version of the algorithm sometimes is unable to provide reasonable solutions for problems from discrete design optimization of steel frames. Therefore, by investigating the shortcomings of the BB-BC algorithm, it is aimed to enhance the algorithm for solving complicated steel frame o...
