OPTIMAD develops innovative fluid dynamic solvers for the Aeronautics & Space industry. Particular attention of our developments has been paid to the treatment of complex and morphing geometries and their efficient representation on the most suited computational grid for the particular application.
immersed boundaries for inviscid flows
Chimera grids for High-Reynolds number flows
adaptive mesh refinement
non-linear aerodynamic derivatives
control surface deflection and maneuvering
rarefied flows using the BGK model
Furthermore this framework is particularly suited to be used for aerodynamic shape optimization.
OPTIMAD has strong competences in the following fields:
Hessian calculations & approximations
parameterization based on Free-Form Deformation
robust optimization under uncertainty
reduced order modelling
