Bayesian optimisation based on Gaussian process regression (GPR) is an efficient gradient-free algorithm widely used in various fields of data sciences to find global optima. Based on a recent study by the authors, Bayesian optimisation is shown to be applicable to optimisation problems based on simulations of different fluid flows. Examples range from academic to more industrially-relevant cases. As a main conclusion, the number of flow simulations required in Bayesian optimisation was found not to exponentially grow with the dimensionality of the design parameters (hence, no curse of dimensionality). Here, the Bayesian optimisation method is outlined and its application to the shape optimisation of a two-dimensional lid-driven cavity flow is detailed.
