PyFR Seminar Series: talk by Mr. Anthony Aubry on “Gradient-Free Aerodynamic Shape Optimization using PyFR and MADS”

The series comprises invited talks on a range of topics related to the theory of high-order Flux Reconstruction schemes, their implementation in the PyFR (www.pyfr.org) flow solver, and their application to industrially relevant flow problems. The overarching objective of the series is to help bridge the gap between academic research activities and real-world industrial requirements. […]
