This paper presents a procedure for the sensitivity analysis of buckling load in fluid-structure interaction problems. In the formulation, the buckling of thin structures subjected to the pressure of viscous flow is modeled, where the geometrically nonlinear equation and the Navier-Stokes equation should be considered. These equations are solved by the strong coupling formulation and the Newton-Raphson method. In order to confirm the validity of this procedure, the arch subjected to only the static pressure of fluid is analyzed. Finally, simple optimization considering fluid-structure interaction is performed using the calculated sensitivity along with the steepest descend method and the satisfactory result is obtained.
