 March 8, 2004, 14:42 Sensitivity and uncertainty of CFD #1 Jim Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, All I just read a paper about using Monte Carlo method for CFD analysis. The authors run 100 times for their sensitivity analysis. In my case, this method is not feasible, since each of my run takes a long time. I would like to know what's the best way for CFD sensitivity and uncertainty analysis, how to significantly decrease the total number of runs (especially when use commercial CFD software)? Waiting for your comments! Thanks! Jim

Random process" by O. P. Le Maitre, M. T. Reagan, H. N. Najm, R.G. Ghanem and O. M. Knio, J. Comput. Phys. 181(1), pp. 9-44, 2001 Direct link here Regards

It's a one-phase CFD modelling using phoenics. In my case, it is a two phase problem and I am using CFX. What I want to know is how to conduct sensitivity and uncertainty analysis for a time consuming CFD modelling. Since usually sensitivity analysis is based on lots of runs. However, 100 time runs may take me hlaf to one year. Thanks!
