Fluid Dynamics and Adjoint-based Optimization at Bosch Corporate Sector Research and Advance Engineering
We will introduce the group for Fluid Dynamics at the Corporate Sector Research and Advance Engineering of Robert Bosch GmbH and present the current activities with respect to adjoint methods in fluid dynamics. The first results of a feasibility study focusing on the optimization of an ECU cooling device will be presented, showing both the high potential of the approach and the limitations of the methods currently available in industry. The requirements for adjoint methods and sensitivity post-processing techniques will be discussed from an industrial point of view.
