Sensitivity Analysis of a Truss Tower
Application ID: 72101
Sensitivity analysis is an efficient way of computing the gradient of an objective function with respect to many control variables. This example uses the pitch and yaw in the top of a truss tower as objective functions. It shows how to compute the sensitivity of these angles with respect to changes in the individual truss member diameters.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
