A Numerical Method for Shape Optimal Design in the Oseen Flow with Heat Transfer
Abstract: This paper is concerned with the optimal design of an obstacle located in the viscous and incompressible fluid which is driven by the steady-state Oseen equations with thermal effects. The structure of shape gradient of the cost functional is derived by applying the differentiability of a minimax formulation involving a Lagrange functional with a space parametrization technique. A gradient type algorithm is employed to the shape optimization problem. Numerical examples indicate that our theory is useful for practical purpose and the proposed algorithm is feasible.
