for Chapter 7
Description: This directory contains the MATLAB codes for Examples 7.15 and 7.16 along with an example illustrating the
accuracy of the sensitivity equation for the spring model in Example 7.15.
Example7_15: This is a spring model in which the stiffness K is considered fixed and known and the damping parameter C
is the parameter considered in statistical analysis. The code Example7_15_long.m takes approximately 45 s to run.
Codes: Example7_15.zip or individually as Example7_15.m, Example7_15_long.m , spring_function.m
Sensitivity Equation: This example illustrates the solution to the sensitivity equation for the damping coefficient C in the spring model
of Example 7.15. Specifically, it compares the analytic sensitivity solution with the computed solution to the sensitivity equation.
Codes: spring_sensitivity.m, spring_rhs.m, spring_sens_rhs.m
Example 7.16: This is the steady state heat example for data collected from an aluminum rod as detailed in Example 3.5. This
requires the data final_al_data.txt.
Codes: Example7_16.zip or individually as Example7_16.m, heat_fun_al.m
