Sensitivity Analysis

Adjoint-based Sensitivity Analysis for Multistage Turbomachinery

This was my PhD project, where I worked on implementing multistage analysis capability to an adjoint solver of a proprietary CFD code tubomachinery applications. The The work resulted in the thesis entitled “Aero-thermal analysis and design of turbomachinery blades using multi-stage adjoint methods”.

Adjoint Formulation of a Steady Multistage Turbomachinery Interface Using Automatic Differentiation

The use of high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools in turbomachinery design has seen a continuous increase as a result of computational power growth and numerical methods improvement. These tools are often used in optimization …
