About this book Over the last fifty years, the ability to carry out analysis as a precursor to decision making in engineering design has increased dramatically.

In particular, the advent of modern computing systems and the development of advanced numerical methods have made computational modelling a vital tool for producing optimized designs. The airfoil with sinusoidal leading edge was numerically investigated and compared to the baseline results in two Reynolds Numbers of 10 6, 5 × 10 and drag coefficients are calculated and plotted in Figure ing to the lift coefficient obtained by the numerical analysis, the modified airfoil lift coefficient is not improved at low angle of by: Before we explain our motivation for writing this book, let us place its subject in a more general context.

Shape optimization can be viewed as a part of the important branch of computational mechanics called structural structural optimization problems one tries to set up some data of the mathematical model that describe the behavior of a structure in order to find.

Starting with the case of differentiable data and the classical results on constrained optimization problems, continuing with the topic of nonsmooth objects involved in optimization, the book concentrates on both theoretical and practical aspects.
