Sensitivity analysis has become a natural step in the uncertainty analysis framework. As there is no general sensitivity measure that would capture all information on impact of input factors on model output, analysts tend to combine various measures to obtain a broader image of interactions between different modes. This article concentrates on the correlation ratio, demonstrates methods for calculating this quantity efficiently and accurately, and compares the results. A new method inspired by… Expand

It is shown that when the model output is smooth with regards to the inputs, a spectral convergence of the computed sensitivity indices is achieved, but even for smooth outputs the method is limited to a moderate number of inputs, as it becomes computationally too demanding to reach the convergence domain.
