We demonstrate an adjoint based approach for accelerating Monte Carlo estimation of risk, and apply it to estimating the probability of unstart in a SCRamjet engine under uncertain conditions that are characterized by various Gaussian and non-Gaussian distributions. The adjoint equation is solved with respect to an objective function that is used to… CONTINUE READING
