      CONTRIB: New adjoint optimisation and tools · ecc1fb5e
      Vaggelis Papoutsis authored
      A set of libraries and executables creating a workflow for performing
      gradient-based optimisation loops. The main executable (adjointOptimisationFoam)
      solves the flow (primal) equations, followed by the adjoint equations and,
      eventually, the computation of sensitivity derivatives.
      
      Current functionality supports the solution of the adjoint equations for
      incompressible turbulent flows, including the adjoint to the Spalart-Allmaras
      turbulence model and the adjoint to the nutUSpaldingWallFunction, [1], [2].
      
      Sensitivity derivatives are computed with respect to the normal displacement of
      boundary wall nodes/faces (the so-called sensitivity maps) following the
      Enhanced Surface Integrals (E-SI) formulation, [3].
      
      The software was developed by PCOpt/NTUA and FOSS GP, with contributions from
