Adjoint based optimization connected with the CAD

Application of adjoint method in computational fluid dynamics makes the calculation of gradients of objective functions with respect to design parameters computationally affordable. By applying traditional methods, e.g methods based on finite differences, the number of simulations required for the gradient calculations increases drastically with an increasing number of design parameters. Through the use of adjoint method is it possible to calculate all gradients in “one shot”.
