A sensitivity analysis is presented for the steady-state and transient heat conduction of functionally graded materials (FGMs). Based on the finite element method, the sensitivity equations of heat conduction are presented by using the direct method and the adjoint method. In the solution of transient problem, the precise time integration (PTI) is employed. The spatial volume fractions of materials of FGM (size problem) and the shape design parameters are considered. Detailed formulations especial for the FGMs are provided. The numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the precision and applicability of the proposed method.
Compared to the conventional materials, the functionally graded materials (FGMs) show their predominant advantages of thermal and structural performance in high-temperature environments. During the past two decades, much research of FGMs have been focused on the manufacture, material design and property estimation, thermal and structural analysis  and . As the role of FGMs in industrial applications is further enhanced, attentions are drawn, recently, to design optimization of FGMs . One of the basic techniques of design optimization is sensitivity analysis. Sensitivities are valuable information for design optimization, stochastic analysis and inverse problems. They reflect the change rates (derivatives) of system responses with respect to design variables. In this paper, the sensitivity analysis of heat conduction will be discussed, which will serve as the basis for the research of coupled thermo-structural responses (thermal stress, thermal deformation, thermal buckling and thermal vibration). Numerous publications on sensitivity analysis of heat conduction for general problems have presented the development history of the relevant research. Haftka and Malku  and  presented the sensitivity analysis of heat conduction based on a discrete model, which considered both the linear and nonlinear cases. Dems  and  discussed the sensitivity analysis of size and shape design variable for linear steady/transient heat conduction. Meric  proposed a BEM method of shape sensitivity analysis for steady nonlinear heat conduction problem. Tortorelli et al.  and  studied the sensitivity analysis of linear/nonlinear heat conduction based on continuum model. They also presented the finite element formulations for solving the sensitivity equations. Kleiber and Sluzalec  deduced the sensitivity analysis equations of shape design variables by employing the material derivative and control volume methods. In conjunction with the semi-analytical method and finite element method, Gu and Grandhi  investigated the sensitivity analysis of transient heat conduction and discussed the adjoint method and direct method. Dems and Rousselet  and  studied the sensitivity analysis of shape design for transient thermal problem. Blackwell et al.  carried out the sensitivity analysis with respect to material properties and initial/boundary parameters based on the energy equations. Lee and Kwak  performed shape design sensitivity analysis using boundary integral equation formulation. The authors in ,  and  investigated the application of precise time integration (PTI) to the transient analysis and its sensitivity for heat conduction. The PTI method possesses high numerical precision and some unique numerical merits. Numerical results showed that the PTI method is superior to the conventional time difference method in respect of numerical precision. The work of topological sensitivity analysis on heat conduction is presented by Novotny et al. . In their research, the topological sensitivity is defined in a specific mathematical framework so that the numerical techniques of shape sensitivity analysis can be applied. In the field of sensitivity analysis for design optimization of FGMs, there exist a limited number of publications. Tanaka et al.  and  studied the design optimization of thermal stress of FGM, in which the direct method was employed to compute sensitivities based on the incremental form of governing equations. Cho and Ha  used global finite difference method to carry out the sensitivity analysis in the design optimization of two-dimensional FGM problems. Turteltaub  and  investigated the design optimization and optimal control of FGMs. The sensitivity analysis of his work was based on continuum model in conjunction with adjoint method. In this paper, the sensitivity analysis is carried out based on the discrete form of finite element equations. The direct method and the adjoint method are employed to derive the sensitivity equations for both steady-state and transient heat conduction problem. In the solution of transient problem, the PTI is applied. The graded method , which computes the material properties of FGM by using the generalized isoparametric formulations, is employed in order to improve the modeling capability and numerical precision. Detailed formulations of sensitivity analysis are provided. Numerical examples are presented to validate the accuracy and the applicability of the method.

In this paper, the sensitivity analysis of heat conduction for functionally graded materials is presented. The steady-state and transient problem are treated with the direct method and the adjoint method. The precise time integration method is employed to solve the transient problem. In the modeling of FGM, the graded finite element is applied. As for the design variable of composite fraction, the element derivatives can be deduced analytically, while as for shape design variable the semi-analytical method is recommended. Numerical results show that the direct method and the adjoint method have the same numerical precision in sensitivity results. Most of the results correlate well with the exact solution or those obtained by the FDM method. It is concluded that the methods in this paper is valid for heat conduction problem and can be used as a basis for the coupled sensitivity analysis of thermostructural responses (stress, deformation, buckling) for FGMs.
