Selected shape optimization problems from industry and how to solve them with modern HPC techniques
In this talk we like to give a small insight into shape optimization problems from industry that we were involved in the last couple of months. We will discuss two of them – one coming from aerodynamics and one from hydrodynamics – in detail and especially why they show a need for modern techniques and the use of HPC.
Most of the all the algorithms and programs that we apply throughout an optimization loop are developed either by our team members or in cooperation with universities from all over the world, the most important ones being the open-source CFD code SU2 and the algorithmic differentiation tool CoDiPack.
Within the scope of this talk, we will however stress their application and the technical side of the topics rather than their in depth development.
