Prof. Kaitai Li - Xian Jiaotong University
Feb 18, 2014 - 3:15pm to 4:30pm
Seminar - E1 122
The Drag Functional (Hydrodymamical Force acting on the Boundary) is choosen as objective functional for shape optimization of Navier-Stokes boundary. Since conjiugate gradient methods to compute optimization must do numerical differential for 3D Stress tensor and Gateaux derivative of soluyions of... read more
