Optimal Control of Thermally Convected Fluid Flows

  title={Optimal Control of Thermally Convected Fluid Flows},
  author={Kazufumi Ito and S. S. Ravindran},
  journal={SIAM J. Scientific Computing},
We examine the optimal control of stationary thermally convected uid ows from the theoretical and numerical point of view. We use thermal convection as control mechanism, that is, control is eeected through the temperature on part of the boundary. Control problems are formulated as constrained minimization problem. Existence of optimal control is given and a rst order necessary conditions of opti-mality from which optimal solutions can be obtained is established. We develop numerical methods to… CONTINUE READING
