Abstract

Modern fluid mechanics examines understanding, predicting and directing of fluids in the fluid structures. But new computational methods need to find out the optimal solution of each hydraulic system because of minimization of power losses. Consequently, this article looks through [...]

Abstract

Adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) is potentially an effective way to automatically generate computational meshes for high-fidelity simulations such as Large Eddy Simulation (LES). Adjoint methods, which are able to localize error contributions, can be used to optimize the mesh for computing [...]

Abstract

This paper presents the Multi-Disciplinary Optimization (MDO) of a business jet including static aeroelastic effects. Two different CFD tools (AETHER by Dassault Aviation and PUMA by NTUA) are coupled with a CSM model (VPS software by ESI). Single discipline as well as coupled [...]

Abstract

There is a need to estimate complex seismic input motions in a near-surface domain, without resorting to the hypocenter, from restricted seismic measurement data. Thus, engineers can replicate responses within structures and soils after an earthquake occurrence by using the estimated [...]

Abstract

In recent years, the optimal control in fluid dynamics has gained attention for the design and the optimization of engineering devices. One of the main challenges concerns the application of the optimal control theory to turbulent flows modeled by the Reynolds averaging Navier-Stokes [...]

Abstract

Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) have become the industrial standard to represent and exchange a CAD geometry between CAD/CAE systems. CAD-based shape parameterisation uses parameters of a CAD model to modify the shape which allows to integrate a CAD model into the design [...]
