In this study, we present a new numerical method to quantitatively analyze the reliability of numerical models by using the sensitivity theory. If a reference case of typical parameters is once calculated with the method, no additional calculation is required to estimate the results of the other numerical parameters such as more detailed solutions. Furthermore, we can estimate the strict solution from the sensitivity analysis results and can quantitatively evaluate the reliability of the numerical solution by calculating the numerical error.
