Dear SU2 Developers,
I'm running a continuous shape optimization with the vki turbine present in TestCases/rans/vki_turbine.

The problem is I get a wrong deformation at the trailing edge where the cells overlap to each other while on the other part of the airfoil everything looks fine. I'm using Hicks-Henne method to parametrize the airfoil but, even trying different settings, I cannot overtake the problem.

Any Idea?

Thanks for your work
