The paper deals with numerical modelling of the flow in the intercooler filling line by Adjoint solver to minimize pressure loss. The ANSYS Fluent software was used for the calculations. The basic flow calculation was performed in the first phase. Then the mathematical model with Adjoint solver optimization tool was defined. The numerical calculation was unstable and did not lead to a convergent solution, because of creation of vortexes. The mathematical model was simplified in the second phase. To suppress instabilities and vortices a dynamic viscosity of coolant was adjusted. The pressure gradients between inlet and outlet for unmodified geometry and for modified geometry were evaluated. The final evaluations of pressure drop changes were implemented for modified geometry with original dynamic viscosity of the coolant.
