ESI Group has launched a pilot version of its Adjoint Optimization Solver, developed with Intel. According to the company, the solution brings the Intel Fortran 90 compiler to a “unique level of performance,” allowing the use of adjoint-based optimization methods across a wide range of industry sectors.
In an effort to make the adjoint-based method accessible to various industries, and to ease up code maintenance, ESI has recently worked towards an independent, discrete adjoint solver that takes the form of a dynamic library coded in advanced Fortran 90.
This library can abstract all the derivative machinery required for assembling and solving the adjoint system, irrespective of any discretization scheme of the application code. It has been fully validated within ACE+ Suite, ESI s multiphysics software.
