**A general first-order global sensitivity analysis method**Chonggang Xu, George Z. Gertner* Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign USA**Uncertainty & Sensitivity analysis Techniques**• Design of experiments method • Sampling-based method • Fourier Amplitude Sensitivity Test (FAST) • Sobol’s method • ANOVA method • Moment independent approaches**FAST**Search function: Fourier transformation: Sum spectrum Variance decomposition:**Computationally efficient global sensitivity analysis**method; Suitable for nonlinear and non-monotonic models; Aliasing effects for small sample sizes(frequency interference) ; Suitability for only models with independent parameters; FAST advantages & limitations**Real applications**• Dependence among parameters; • Complex model with many parameters, which needs much computation times and large sample sizes in traditional FAST;**FAST improvement**• Reorder independent parameters limitation; • Random Balance Design (Tarantola et al. 2006) commom frequency for all parameters and permuting Overcome aliasing effect limitation; ↑ for each parameter.

Random balance design may introduce random error. 2. Assume that the low characteristic amplitudes at high harmonic order are more susceptible to the random error than relatively high characteristic amplitudes at a low harmonic order .**Simulated annealing refinement for correlated samples**PAR is photosynthetic active radiation**TEST CASES**Synthesized FAST specification for test cases**Test case one:**Y=2x1+3x2 ,where x1 and x2 are standard normally distributed with a Pearson correlation coefficient of 0.7 SFAST is synthesized FAST Circles are analytical**Test case two:(Lu and Mohanty, 2001)**Rank correlation Circles are based on correlation ratio method by Saltelli(2001) based McKay’s one-way ANOVA.
