Abstract

A three-dimensional shape identification problem (or inverse geometry problem) in estimating the unknown irregular shape of internal cavity by using the steepest descent method (SDM) and a general purpose commercial code CFD-RC is examined in this study based on the simulated measured temperature distributions on the outer surface by infrared thermography. The advantage of calling CFD-RC as a subroutine in the present shape identification problem lies in its characteristics of easily-handling the problem considered here since the auto mesh function of CFD-RC enables the handling of this moving boundary problem. \newline Three test cases are performed to test the validity and accuracy of the present shape identification algorithm by using different types of cavity shapes, initial guesses and measurement errors. Results show that excellent estimations on the unknown geometry of the internal cavity can be obtained.
