Abstract

A non-linear fin design algorithm is applied to estimate the optimum shapes for the spine and longitudinal fins by using the conjugate gradient method (CGM) based on the desired fin efficiency and fin volume. One of the advantages in using CGM in the inverse design problem lies in that it can handle problems having a large number of unknown parameters easily and converges very fast. The validity of the present algorithm by using the CGM to solve the non-linear fin design problem is justified based on numerical experiments. Results show that the optimum fin shapes can always be obtained.
