Adjoint Multiphysics solvers using automatic differentiation

Principal investigator: Jens-Dominik MUELLER

Many physical problems such as conjugate heat transfer or fluid-structure interaction with similar densities require close-coupling of the disciplines. Typical optimisation libraries only offer loose coupling e.g. at the level of the cost function evaluation in each discipline.
The goal of the project is to develop automated  gradient-based optimisation methods for closely-coupled simulation, mesh adaptation and optimisation of these systems.
