Abstract

This paper presents a numerical study of the sensitivity of an eddy viscosity model with respect to the variation of the eddy viscosity parameter for the two-dimensional driven cavity problem and flow around a cylinder. The main objective is to provide a comparison between computing the sensitivity using sensitivity equation and computing the sensitivity using finite difference methods and also numerically illustrate the application of the sensitivity computations in improving drag flow functional.
