CFD topology optimization for channel flow


Task: Find a geometrical proposal for a channel within a fluid design space:

For each fluid cell decide:

?
Inflow

Outflow

Should this cell belong to the channel or not? Each fluid cell is a design variable! Millions of design variables possible

OC-based Topology Optimization

The Optimality Criterium is to avoid flow recirculation An achieved consequence is (for many technical flows) a reduction of pressure drop Redesign Rule: Elimination of local backflow and recirculation by blocking out of backflow areas provides an optimization approach by means of improvement
