Hello again,

I'm trying to optimize a shape of an airfoil with adjoint method. Instead to define a new boundary condition for Ua (due to my cost-function) I've calculated the value of Ua on the airfoil-boundary manually.

But I don't really know, whether it was "legal" ?

The solution of adjoint equations doesn't converge, and that is the main problem...

Thanks in advance for every comment,
best regards,
