The use of computational fluid dynamics in the design and analysis of aerospace vehicles has become routine over the past several decades. However, the use of adjoint techniques for optimizing the performance of those vehicles has evolved only over the past ten years. This webinar delivers a brief overview of the adjoint methodology (as implemented in Ansys Fluent) and explore several examples of adjoint optimization applied to a diverse range of aerospace problems.
- Understand adjoint optimization methodology.
- Receive expert tips on Ansys Fluent adjoint implementation.
- Explore an example of adjoint optimization applied to A&D problems.
