  1. 1. Data Assimilation in Fluid Dynamics using Adjoint Optimization

    University dissertation from Matematiska institutionen

    Author : Johan Lundvall; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Data assimilation; Inverse problem; Adjoint optimization; Burgers equation; nonlinear; Landweber; Initial pressure; Euler flow; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik;

    Abstract : Data assimilation arises in a vast array of different topics: traditionally in meteorological and oceanographic modelling, wind tunnel or water tunnel experiments and recently from biomedical engineering. Data assimilation is a process for combine measured or observed data with a mathematical model, to obtain estimates of the expected data. READ MORE

  2. 2. Shape Optimization for Electromagnetic and Quasimagnetostatic Applications

    University dissertation from Matematiska institutionen

    Author : Per Jacobsson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; shape optimization; continuum sensitivity; electromagnetic scattering; adjoint problem;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adjoint-based aerodynamic shape optimization

    University dissertation from Uppsala University

    Author : Olivier Amoignon; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Numerical Analysis; Numerisk analys;

    Abstract : An adjoint system of the Euler equations of gas dynamics is derived in order to solve aerodynamic shape optimization problems with gradient-based methods. The derivation is based on the fully discrete flow model and involves differentiation and transposition of the system of equations obtained by an unstructured and node-centered finite-volume discretization.

  4. 4. Direct and Inverse Methods for Waveguides and Scattering Problems in the Time Domain

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erik Abenius; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Maxwell s equations; time-domain; FDTD; finite-element; hybrid; thin sheet; waveguide; PML; inverse scattering; adjoint; gradient-based; minimization; Beräkningsvetenskap med inriktning mot numerisk analys; Scientific Computing with specialization in Numerical Analysis;

    Abstract : Numerical simulation is an important tool in understanding the electromagnetic field and how it interacts with the environment. Different topics for time-domain finite-difference (FDTD) and finite-element (FETD) methods for Maxwell's equations are treated in this thesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis, Control, and Design Optimization of Engineering Mechanics Systems

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Esubalewe Lakie Yedeg; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Topology optimization; Helmholtz equation; acoustic impedance; anisotropic filter; thin structures; finite element method; Nitsche-type method; interface problem; Optimal control; adjoint method; Computing Science; administrativ databehandling;

    Abstract : This thesis considers applications of gradient-based optimization algorithms to the design and control of some mechanics systems. The material distribution approach to topology optimization is applied to design two different acoustic devices, a reactive muffler and an acoustic horn, and optimization is used to control a ball pitching robot.
