If u is not specified on some part S of boundary, and you have a term like int(S)(X du) then set X=0 on S. The idea is simply to get rid of all the variations in the primal quantities.

It says in this article that "δu=0 on S(solid boundaries to be optimized) and on the outflow (Γout)". I think that δu=0 is valid on S because of the dirichlet (no-slip) boundary condition but I can't understand why δu=0 on the outlet boundary. I think dirichlet conditions are not imposed on the velocity at the outlet when solving the flow. Q) Is δu=0 valid on the outlet boundary? I have another question. Q) Could someone understand the meaning of the following statement? "δu is the test function associated to the adjoint velocity, then it is zero wherever ψu(adjoint velocity) is prescribed"

So to get rid of du on outflow boundary, set Psi_u=0. Thats how I look at it.
