Maximize heat transfer for a given 2D channel
 
I would like to use this code for maximizing heat transfer for a given 2D channel. Kindly suggest me how can I use SU2 for the shape optimization to maximize the heat transfer. The 2D channel dimensions and inflow/outflow BCs are fixed. The baffles or corrugations needs be designed for maximum heat transfer.

Best regards
Kedar Pathak

Shape optimization based on a heat objective function is very interesting for us and some of us are working on that. It will be in the next release where our plan is to increase the number of objective functions.
