Abstract

Aerodynamic problems are defined by the governing partial differential or integral equations, shapes and sizes of the flow domains, boundary and initial conditions, fluid properties, and by internal sources and external inputs of mass, momentum and energy. In the case of an analysis (direct problem) we are asked to predict the details of a flow-field if the shape(s) and size(s) of the object(s) are given. In the case of a design (inverse or indirect problem) we are asked to determine the shape(s) and size(s) of the aerodynamic configuration(s) that will satisfy the governing flow-field equation(s) subject to specified surface pressure or velocity boundary conditions and certain geometric constraints [130]–[138]. The entire design technology is driven by the increased industrial demand for reduction of the design cycle time and minimization of the need for the costly a posteriori design modifications.
