Abstract : The Sensitivity Analysis for Multidisciplinary Systems (SAMS) program aims to provide the aerospace community with reliable and robust tools for the economical and accurate evaluation of sensitivities for multidisciplinary design and analysis. The program is building on the well-known and widely-used FUN3D computational fluid dynamics solver, modularizing and expanding it to include adjoint-based aeroelastic sensitivities. The aeroelastic modeling will eventually support both mode-based structural representations and time-dependent, nonlinear finite element structural dynamics. This interim report describes progress towards the goals of the program.
