Shape optimisation of a supersonic aircraft using free-form deformation…
Supersonic flow around the space shuttle:
an insufficient discretisation of physical
laws has been automatically detected by an a-posteriori error indicator and improved.
Having parameterized the original shape, we look for the optimal values of the shape parameters. The objective is to produce magnetic
fi elds as homogeneous as possible, while satisfying thermal (cooling)
and mechanical (structural) constraints.
