Abstract:In the second part of the study, an adjoint design method was employed for compressor design to broaden the range of design capability, to facilitate 3D design applications, and to complement the S3D design method. An adjoint design code was developed, based on a 3D compressor flow analysis code, using the discrete adjoint method for the Euler equations. Unlike external flows where any near-field disturbances are attenuated at far-field, internal flow problems create improper interactions of adjoint variables between boundaries because boundary surfaces are closely facing each other. A validation study on sensitivities reveals that, in internal flow problems, constraints should be imposed on internal boundaries to reflect proper physics of the adjoint system. The design results of the adjoint method indicate that the method enables highly efficient 3D designs by drastically reducing the computational cost of sensitivity analysis and that it can be combined with the S3D method to provide a practical and efficient 3D design tool for transonic compressor blades.
