Using Automatic Differentiation for Adjoint CFD Code Development

Giles, M. B. and Ghate, D. and Duta, M. C. (2005) Using Automatic Differentiation for Adjoint CFD Code Development. Technical Report. Unspecified. (Submitted)



This paper addresses the concerns of CFD code developers who are facing the task of creating a discrete adjoint CFD code for design optimisation. It discusses how the development of such a code can be greatly eased through the selective use of Automatic Differentiation, and how the software development can be subjected to a sequence of checks to ensure the correctness of the final software.
