Both the mathematical and engineering foundations of design sensitivity analysis of structural systems are examined with a broad range of .Sensitivity analysis is the study of how the uncertainty in the output of a mathematical model or system (numerical or otherwise) can be divided and allocated to different sources of uncertainty in its inputs.

A related practice is uncertainty analysis, which has a greater focus on uncertainty quantification and propagation of uncertainty; ideally, uncertainty and sensitivity analysis. Rather, a set of key parameters was carefully chosen to capture important influences on release and consequence results.

21 MELCOR parameters and MACCS parameters (representing 20 parameter groups) were included in the integrated analysis. The uncertainty in these parameters was propagated to consequence results in a two-step Monte .
