 Control of unsteady flows

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents applications of shape optimization algorithms to cases where the flow is unsteady for rigid and elastic bodies, and shows that control and OSD problems are particular cases of a general approach. Closed loop control algorithms are presented together with an analogy with dynamical systems. The chapter starts with model problems for rigid and elastic objects. In multi-model configurations, coupling strategies have been discussed and low complexity models introduced.

Keywords: closed loop control algorithms; shape optimization; unsteady flows; elastic bodies; low complexity models
