FlowHead

Adjunct GolfFluid Optimisation Workflows for Highly Effective Automotive Development Processes

FlowHead is a 'small to medium size focused research project' funded by the European Commission under THEME  SST.2007-RTD-1: Competitive product development from February 2009 to January 2012.

The aim of FlowHead is to develop fast gradient-based optimisation methods using adjoint sensitivities for automotive flow design. This is done by:

  • developing and enhancing a range of adjoint solvers, including commercially licensed solvers, open source solvers and research codes
  • developing automated shape parametrisation methods to deliver sensitivities for the complete design chain
  • develop topology optimisation methods for industrial applications
  • to integrate the optimisation tools into the design workbench and the product development process.
