DAFoam develops an efficient discrete adjoint method to perform high-fidelity multidisciplinary design optimization. DAFoam has the following features:

  • It uses a popular open-source package OpenFOAM for multiphysics analysis.
  • It implements a Jacobian-free discrete adjoint approach with competitive speed, scalability, and accuracy.
  • It has a convenient Python interface to couple with OpenMDAO for multidisciplinary design optimization.

DAFoam is distributed using the GPL-v3 license, and its source code is available from Github
