Applied Shape Optimization for Fluids

Bijan Mohammadi and Olivier Pironneau


The fields of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and optimal shape design (OSD) have received considerable attention in the recent past, and are of practical importance for many engineering applications. This book deals with shape optimization problems for fluids, with the equations needed for their understanding (Euler and Navier Strokes, but also those for microfluids) and with the numerical simulation of these problems. It presents the state of the art in shape optimization for an extended range of applications involving fluid flows. Automatic differentiation, approximate gradients, unstruc ... More

Keywords: shape optimization, automatic differentiation, level set, topological optimization, microfluids
