    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; shape optimization; design optimization; acoustic wave propagation; Helmholtz equation; Boundary Element Method; Finite Element Method; inverse problems; adjoint method; gradient-based optimization; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Boundary shape optimization is a technique to search for an optimal shape by modifying the boundary of a device with a pre-specified topology. We consider boundary shape optimization of acoustic horns in loudspeakers and brass wind instruments. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Cost Optimization of Aircraft Structures

    Författare :Markus Kaufmann; Dan Zenkert; Malin Åkermo; Per Wennhage; Erik Lund; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aircraft structures; optimization; cost estimation; manufacturing cost; direct operating cost; multiobjective optimization; multidisciplinary optimization; composites; airframe design; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Composite structures can lower the weight of an airliner significantly. Due to the higher process complexity and the high material cost, however, the low weight often comes with a significant increase in production cost. The application of cost-effective design strategies is one mean to meet this challenge. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Gradient-based aerodynamic shape optimization, based on Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis of the flow, is a method that can automatically improve designs of aircraft components. The prospect is to reduce a cost function that reflects aerodynamic performances. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Shape Optimization for Electromagnetic and Quasimagnetostatic Applications

    Författare :Per Jacobsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; shape optimization; continuum sensitivity; electromagnetic scattering; adjoint problem;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis uses a continuum formulation of sensitivity for shape optimization in two-dimensional microwave scattering and quasimagnetostatic problems. The continuum sensitivity is obtained by solving an appropriate adjoint problem. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Development of shape optimization for internal flows

    Författare :EYSTEINN HELGASON; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; internal flow; computational fluid dynamics; sensitivities; continuous adjoint method.; optimization;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes the development of an adjoint based optimizationmethod.The goal is to develop a robust method capable of handling multipledesign variables, whereastraditional methods have shown to be too costly for many design parameters.The main application is for internal flow geometries within theautomotive industry.
