Inversion for Eigenvalues and Modes Using Sierra-SD and ROL

Walsh, Timothy W.; Aquino, Wilkins A.; Ridzal, Denis R.; Kouri, Drew P.

In this report we formulate eigenvalue-based methods for model calibration using a PDE-constrained optimization framework. We derive the abstract optimization operators from first principles and implement these methods using Sierra-SD and the Rapid Optimization Library (ROL). To demon- strate this approach, we use experimental measurements and an inverse solution to compute the joint and elastic foam properties of a low-fidelity unit (LFU) model.
