Shape Derivative of Drag Functional
Abstract. In the paper compressible, stationary Navier-Stokes (N-S) equations are considered. The model is well-posed, there exist weak solutions in bounded domains, subject to inhomogeneous boundary conditions. The shape sensitivity analysis is performed for N-S boundary value problems, in the framework of small perturbations of the so-called approximate solutions. The approximate solutions are determined from Stokes problem and the small perturbations are given by solutions to the full nonlinear model. Such solutions are unique. The differentiability of the specific solutions with respect to the coefficients of differential operators implies the shape differentiability of the drag functional. The shape gradient of the drag functional is derived in the classical and useful for computations form, an appropriate adjoint state is introduced to this end. The shape derivatives of solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations are given by smooth functions, however the shape differentiability can...
