Parallel calculation of sensitivity derivatives for aircraft design using automatic differentiation
Abstract
Realistic multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) of advanced aircraft using stateoftheart computers is an extremely challenging problem from both the physical modelling and computer science points of view. In order to produce an efficient aircraft design, many tradeoffs must be made among the various physical design variables. Similarly, in order to produce an efficient design scheme, many tradeoffs must be made among the various MDO implementation options. In this paper, we examine the effects of vectorization and coarsegrained parallelization on the SD calculation using a representative example taken from a transonic transport design problem.
