This paper deals with the problem of sensitivity analysis in calculus of variations. A perturbation technique is applied to derive the boundary value problem and the system of equations that allow us to obtain the partial derivatives (sensitivities) of the objective function value and the primal and dual optimal solutions with respect to all parameters. Two examples of applications, a simple mathematical problem and a slope stability analysis problem, are used to illustrate the proposed method.
