CAE has been settled down to an indispensable tool for the simulation of a mechanical system according to the development of computer-aided analysis rapidly. Particularly finite element programs have advanced to the one of most valuable things in the filed of CAE due to the remarkable progress in the implementation. But since this analysis tool mostly provides the result of the analysis, it cannot satisfy designers who are seeking for information to improve their designs. Therefore, design sensitivity analysis or optimization module has been incorporated into commercial FEA programs to satisfy the desire of designers since 1990s. Design sensitivity analysis is to compute the rate of change of response with respected to design variable. Design sensitivity analysis is classfied into static design sensitivity analysis, Eigenvalue design sensitivity analysis and dynamic design sensitivity analysis. In this research, it will be presented to nonlinear static design sensitivity analysis formulation and nonlinear static design sensitivity analysis external module based ANSYS have been developed and illustrated an example to verify the developed module.
