Through optimization services, Moshman Research helps our clients improve the performance and efficiency of their designs and systems. Our advanced optimization approach goes well beyond sweeping of design parameters. We leverage adjoint-based gradient-descent to go directly to a better design.


Our team of experts has years of experience in high-fidelity, adjoint-based, and smart parameterization optimization techniques. We use a combination of commercial and research simulation tools and custom software developed in-house to be able to perform flow optimization in a broader set of contexts than is commercially available.



Optimization can be applied in a wide range of industries and applications, including aerospace, automotive, industrial systems, clean energy and many more. 


For example, we recently collaborated on shape optimization of a hydrokinetic turbine for ARPA-E, as shown in the Figure 1. Other aspects of a flow can also be optimized to improve performance and efficiency.

Covid-19 breathalyzer design for at-home testing
Extracting Maximum Energy from Water

Moshman Research helped a client design a prototype Covid-19 breathalyzer. The challenge was to focus the Covid-19 bioaerosols in an exhaled breath onto a detector chip and divert larger bioaerosols that would add noise to the measurement. Using a focusing
