Multi-fidelity design optimisation of a transonic compressor rotor

Brooks, Christopher James, Forrester, A.I.J., Keane, A.J. and Shahpar, S. (2011) Multi-fidelity design optimisation of a transonic compressor rotor At 9th European Conf. Turbomachinery Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics, Turkey. 21 - 25 Mar 2011. 10 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper demonstrates the application of Kriging based approximations to the aerodynamic shape optimisation of a transonic compressor rotor where multiple fidelities of analysis are available. An extension to the co-Kriging method is implemented, and attention is paid to the efficient construction of the approximate models. The initial data sample within each level of the model is selected using space-filling designs, and the covariance structure of the co-Kriging models is obtained using a maximum likelihood estimation based on gradient optimisation with adjoint functions. An efficient leave-one-out cross-validation method is used to estimate model accuracy and is used to guide initial model refinement.
