The Parallel CFD & Optimization Unit (PCOpt) of the Lab. of Thermal Turbomachines, Fluids Dept. of the School of Mech. Engineering of NTUA (Prof. K.C. Giannakoglou) develops CFD-based analysis and optimization methods; the latter are used to solve aero/hydrodynamic shape, topology and flow control optimization problems. Developed optimization methods include gradient-free (stochastic) and gradient-based methods coupled with the adjoint approach. The research activities can be summarized as:
