Inverse Design Capabilities
Since the introduction of direct numerical optimisation, importance of inverse design methods has decreased. Sometimes inverse design is seen as a relict of old design techniques. But inverse design remains important. There arc cases, where the numerical effort of direct optimisation is still inaccepublc. Though this will change in future, there remain other cases: Inverse design allows to construct solutions for comparison with incomplete or defective solutions. E. g. using only partial inputs or other than geometry inputs, a geometry can he designed to he compared with the geometry used for a CFD-calculation Research is needed here, especially, if not only the classical inverse pressure design methods arc to be used, but also other input alternatives.
