Sensitivity Analysis

- Engineering Analysis for MDO is usually

computationally intensive - Evolutionary algorithms for optimization require

too many function calls (analysis) - Efficient, accurate evaluation of gradients is

required by gradient based optimizer - Sensitivity Analysis (generating gradients) is an

important component in MDO

Sensitivity Analysis

- Sensitivity Analysis
- Derivative of output w.r.t. input
- Gradient of output w.r.t. inputs
- Jacobian of outputs w.r.t. inputs

Sensitivity Analysis

- Methods for sensitivity estimation
- Finite Difference Method
- Analytical
- Direct
- Adjoint Continuous, Discrete
- Complex Variables Method
- Automatic Differentiation
- ADIFOR
- ADIC
- Global Sensitivity Equation (GSE)

Finite Difference Method

Finite Difference Methods

- Forward, backward or central differences may be

used - Derivative of yj w.r.t. xi by forward difference

is given by - Note all other elements of vector x are held

fixed at some value - N derivatives will require N1 function

evaluations

Finite Difference Methods

- Advantages
- Almost nil effort to implement
- Most optimizers support finding derivatives by

finite difference from within (requiring no

effort from user) - Well behaved with smooth functions that are

evaluated using non-iterative methods

Finite Difference Methods

- Disadvantages
- Noisy functions yield poor results. Most

iterative analysis with termination criteria are

noisy. Most engineering analysis are non-linear

and iterative in nature. - Accuracy sensitive to step size. 1 pp3 pp8
- N derivatives require N1 analysis.

Computationally intensive. 2 pp 87

Analytical Derivatives

Derivative of Response of an Analysis

- Evaluate f(x),
- Subject to h(x) 0
- x, f, h are all vectors
- x ? ?nx f ? ?nf h ? ?nz
- nx gt nz
- for any arbitrary x, h(x) ? 0
- Only (nx nz) values of x can be
- prescribed
- nz values of x get determined
- by h(x) 0

h(x) ? 0 violates some Conservation. It is not

OK to look at f(x) when x violates Physics.

Derivative of Response of an Analysis

Analysis

- Analysis, h(y,z) 0
- Input y design variable(s)
- Output z state variable(s)
- Analysis for non-linear system requires
- Value of y and initial guess for z
- evaluator for h in terms of y z
- iterator to update z, so that h(y,z) is driven to

0. - Convergence criteria to arrive at z(y)

Analysis

Response of Analysis

- Evaluate f(y, z)
- Subject to, h(y, z) 0
- Note
- y alone is design variable
- z is output of analysis, zy
- df/dy is required ? total derivative

Analytical Derivatives Across Analysis

- Sensitivity required, df/dy ? (Let y, z, f, h

be all scalars) - df/dy ?f/?y ?f/?z dz/dy
- dh ?h/?y dy ?h/?z dz 0
- dz/dy - (?h/?z)-1 ?h/?y
- df/dy ?f/?y - ?f/?z (?h/?z)-1 ?h/?y
- Requires all partial derivatives at (y, z)
- Analytical expressions for partial derivatives?

Analytical Derivatives Across Analysis

- Sensitivity Required
- df/dy ?f/?y - ?f/?z (?h/?z)-1 ?h/?y

- df/dy ?f/?y - ?f/?z (?h/?z)-1 ?h/?y
- Difference!
- In the effort to compute bracketed quantities
- (solution of linear algebraic equations)

- 0.00000024 -.48828122
- 0.00000006 1.95312488

An Example - Timings

- Let time for evaluation T
- ie. evaluation of h, f and their analytical

derivatives - FD across Analysis
- 2 (Niter T T) 2 T (Niter 1)
- (Analysis evaluation of f) to be done twice
- Analytical Derivative
- Niter T 4 T T T (Niter 5)
- 1 analysis 4 derivatives f
- Note Niter 62 in this case

When f, h, y, z Are All Vectors

- Direct Method

When f, h, y, z Are All Vectors

- Adjoint Method

Analytical Derivatives

- Direct and Adjoint Methods require partial

derivatives of f and h - Direct method requires solution of nznz system

for ny RHS vectors - Adjoint method requires solution of nznz syetm

for nf RHS vector - The nznz matrix is often the same as used in

analysis

Direct / Adjoint Methods

- Based on Control Theory Concept

Introduction

- Proposed by Antony Jameson (Stanford)
- Aerodynamic Design via Control Theory Journal

of Scientific Computing, vol. 3, 233-260, 1988. - Optimization is treated as a control problem with

constraints as the control variables

Continuous Adjoint Method

Discrete Adjoint Method

Basic Formulation

(Adjoint Equation)

If ? is such that

then dI G. dy where

- Unlike FDM, solution of h(y,z)0 is not required

for each design variable

Quasi 1D Nozzle Flow

Quasi 1D Nozzle Flow(contd.)

Equating terms with dU, Adjoint equation is

Adjoint boundary conditions

- Observations
- Similar procedure for higher dimensional flows
- Form of adjoint equation is strongly linked to

the field equation - Adjoint equations may be solved using similar

discretization and numerical solution strategies

of the field equations

Road Ahead

- Groups actively involved in further research
- Stanford University (Jameson et al)1,5,6,7
- Oxford University (Mike Giles)8
- Virginia Tech. (Dr. Eugene Cliff)3
- Old Dominian University (Baysal et al)
- Applications
- Extension to unstructured grids 2
- Optimization of a supersonic aircraft

configuration9 - Further areas of research
- A new reduced formulation for adjoint methods

proposed by Jameson7 to eliminate grid

sensitivity of gradients.

Complex Step Method

Complex Variable Method

- For f(x) ? R, it can be shown using

Cauchy-Riemann equality that - As no subtraction is involved, step size can be

as small as the machine precision allows - It has been found that usually a step size lt 10-8

gives near analytic solutions2 - First proposed by Lyness Moler1 in 1967

CVM An example

CVM Implementation

Declare all the variables as complex type

- All the algorithms can be broken into basic

operations - Operations that require redefinition (usually)
- Relational Operators
- Arithmetic functions operators
- FORTRAN-90 intrinsically supports most of the

complex operations - Two options for CVM implementation
- Source modification
- Operator Overloading

Redefine all the functions with complex

definitions

Modification of the I/O statements

Add complex step (h) to the desired variable

Gradient Calculation

CVM General Remarks

- Advantages
- Experimentation with step size not required
- Easy implementation
- Disadvantages
- Separate simulations for each gradient required
- Implementation of CVM as an automatic

differentiation tool3 - Groups working in this area
- Squire Trapp4
- Anderson Newman 5

An Example

- f(y, z) y0.1 z 0.2 , ?f/?y 0.1 y -0.9

z 0.2 - y 0.2, z 0.3
- Comparison with CVM

An Example Timing Issues

- Complex arithmetic takes less than 4 times real

arithmetic - Small enough value of h can yield both f and

?f/?y in single execution

Automatic Differentiation

User Supplied Gradients

User Supplied Gradients

User Supplied Gradients

Gradients by ADIFOR /ADIC

How ADI uses chain rule?

- function1 ( x, y, z )
- function2 ( x, y, w, r )
- function3 ( w, r )
- function4 ( w, r, z )
- We are interested in
- ?z/?x and ?z/?y

- For function3 we can write
- ?r/?w
- If we want to use ?r/?w in
- calculation of ?r/?x, we need
- to use chain rule.
- ?r/?x ?r/?w ?w/?x
- In general we can write
- r ?r/?w w

How to use ADI generated code?

- function1 ( x, y, z )
- function2 ( x, y, w, r )
- function3 ( w, r )
- function4 ( w, r, z )

- f1 ( x, y, z, x, y, z )
- f2 ( x, y, w, r, x, y, w, r )
- f3 ( w, r, w, r )
- f4 ( w, r, z, w, r, z )

New function f1 evaluates the values and

directional gradient specified by direction (x,

y) z ?z/?x ?z/?y x yT To evaluate the

gradient vector we do the above evaluation in

directions (1, 0) and (0, 1)

ADI Sample Code

- To evaluate following function
- function abc ( y, z, w )
- w -y / (z z z)
- end
- ADI software usually breaks
- down the complex expressions
- into simple operations. This
- requires introduction of
- temporary variables to store
- intermediate results

- function abc ( y, z, w )
- t1 -y
- t2 z z
- t3 t2 z
- w t1 / t3
- end
- ADI will use the above code
- to use symbolic differentiation
- to calculate gradients
- Forward Mode
- Reverse Mode

ADI Forward Mode

- Uses successive chain rule to derive the

gradients - abc ( y, z, w )
- t1 -y
- t2 z z
- t3 t2 z
- w t1 / t3

- abc ( y, y, z, z, w, w )
- t1 -y
- t1 -y
- t2 z z
- t2 z z z z
- t3 t2 z
- t3 t2 z z t2
- w t1 / t3
- w ( t1 t3 w ) / t3

ADI Reverse Mode

- Set of operations can be looked as series of

operators working on input variables and

generating new variables

- abc ( y, z, w )
- t1 -y
- t2 z z
- t3 t2 z
- w t1 / t3

w W( T3( T2( T1( y, z ) ) ) w ?W/?T3

?T3/?T2 ?T2/?T1 (?T1/?y y ?T1/?z z)

If gradient is calculated this way, it is

actually in the reverse direction of the basic

computation. Hence the term reverse mode.

ADI Reverse Mode

- Basic Rules
- y f(s)
- sbar sbar ?y/?s ybar
- y f(s, t)
- sbar sbar ?y/?s ybar
- tbar tbar ?y/?t ybar
- abc ( y, z, w )
- t1 -y
- t2 z z
- t3 t2 z
- w t1 / t3

- abc ( y, y, z, z, w, w )
- t1 - y
- t2 z z
- t3 t2 z
- w t1 / t3
- t1bar 1 / t3
- t3bar -t1 / (t3 t3)
- t2bar t3bar z
- zbar t3bar t2
- zbar zbar t2bar z
- zbar zbar t2bar z
- ybar - t1bar
- w ybar y zbar z

ADI generated code

- FORWARD MODE
- t1 - y
- t1 - y
- t2 z z
- t2 z z z z
- t3 t2 z
- t3 t2 z t2 z
- w t1 / t3
- w (t1 - t3 w) / t3

- REVERSE MODE
- t1 - y
- t2 z z
- t3 t2 z
- w t1 / t3
- t1bar 1 / t3
- t3bar -t1 / (t3 t3)
- t2bar t3bar z
- zbar t3bar t2
- zbar zbar t2bar z
- zbar zbar t2bar z
- ybar - t1bar
- w ybar y zbar z

ADI Comments

- The forward mode can be used to produce the

partial derivatives of all dependent variables

w.r.t. a single independent variable time

proportional to the evaluation of F - The reverse mode can be used to produce the

partial derivatives of a single dependent

variable w.r.t. all independent variables in time

proportional to the evaluation of F - ? y1, , yn ? F (? x1, , xm ?)
- For values of n ?? m, the forward mode is more

efficient - For values of m ?? n, the reverse mode is more

efficient

Global Sensitivity Equation

Global Sensitivity (GS)

- Interest is in Multi-Disciplinary Analysis (MDA)
- MDA are coupled analysis
- GS -gt
- GSE requires running
- Analysis to convergence
- twice

Local Sensitivity (LS)

- LS -gt ?? -gt

GS LS

Global Sensitivity Equation

- Requires sensitivity of disciplinary analysis

only - Can be computed after MDA converges

Time Savings

- Suppose
- Analysis-1 and Analysis-2 require n1 and n2

iterations respectively, - T is the time per evaluation for both the

analyses, and - N iterations are required for MDA convergence,

then - Time for FD across MDA
- 2N(n1 n2)T
- Time using GSE
- (N1)(n1 n2)T

Global Sensitivity Equations

- First introduced by Sobieski1 in 1990
- Successful implementations
- HSCT project by Anthony Giunta2
- Supersonic Transport Aircraft by Barthelemy

Dovi3 - Forward swept wing by Kapania Eldred4
