Simulation-Modelling In Science & Engineering [Bassam Rakhshani]

  1. 1. Engineering Modelling and Numerical Simulation: Academic Research, Industrial Application, and Engineering & Science Development Dr. Bassam Rakhshani Perth College - UHI 2010
  2. 2. Perth College - UHI 28/10/2010 Engineering Modelling and Simulation B. Rakhshani Objectives • Aspects of the breakthrough in engineering research using simulation • What engineering field, what sector: education, industry • Leadership in engineering simulation research • Investments in simulation-based research • Impact of investment, expertise, and strategic capabilities on R&D and innovation in simulation- based research
  3. 3. Perth College - UHI 28/10/2010 Engineering Modelling and Simulation B. Rakhshani Definition Modelling and simulation involve the use of computer-based program to solve mathematical formulations of physical phenomena or engineering processes. It is the technique to predict engineering system performance , complementing (expensive) physical testing and experimentation. Computerization of engineering design, performance, and analysis Simulation in Engineering and Science • Material science • Life science and medicine • Energy and sustainability • Mechanical, chemical, civil, aerospace, etc.
  4. 4. Engineering Core Subject (mech., aero., civil, etc.) ITMathematics Modelling = Multidisciplinary Process
  5. 5. Perth College - UHI 28/10/2010 Engineering Modelling and Simulation B. Rakhshani Engineering Modelling and Key Industries • Aerospace & defence • Automotive • Biotech-medical-pharmaceutical • Chemical & petroleum • IT • Education & training • Electrical & electronics • Finance & economics • Industrial & machinery • Instrumentation • Marine • Utilities & energy.
  6. 6. Perth College - UHI 28/10/2010 Engineering Modelling and Simulation B. Rakhshani Examples of the Use of Modelling/Simulation in Engineering • Manufacturing process modelling • Structural analysis • Finite element models of deformation and failure modes • Computational fluid dynamics for turbulence modelling • Multiphysics models for engineered products • System dynamics models for kinematics and vibration analysis • Modelling and analysis of civil engineering • Network models for communication and transportation systems • Enterprise and supply chain models • Simulation and gaming models for training, assessment, and education
  7. 7. Flight control modelling -Simulink Automotive control modelling-Simulink DNA sequencing software (Bioscience Technology) Calculated global wave pattern (marine) Wind turbine, design, load analysis and installation Modelling of fire impact on chemical plant Aerodynamic modelling around cyclist Shuttle modelling
  8. 8. Perth College - UHI 28/10/2010 Engineering Modelling and Simulation B. Rakhshani The Simulation Era • Improvement in the way materials & components are understood, designed, developed, and used • Better understanding of human biological structure • Efficient design for sustainable infrastructures • Efficient use and recovery of energy sources • Speedy modernization of our engineering/life systems • More intelligence into our life process
  9. 9. Modelling vs Experimentation/Testing Aircraft actual noise source identification High-lift physical model testing Landing gear modelled noise source (turbulence) High-lift acoustic source modelling
  10. 10. Pockets of Excellence in Engineering Modelling
  11. 11. Perth College - UHI 28/10/2010 Engineering Modelling and Simulation B. Rakhshani Modelling Attraction • University faculties and researchers everywhere are more interested in computing and open to the myriad of computing possibilities than ever before. This is due to the increased awareness of simulation successes, important changes in industrial attitude, and the demand for qualified computational scientists in all areas of R&D. • Virtual experimentation (modelling), with its increased capabilities for explanation and prediction, is rapidly gaining ground across a wide spectrum of industrial and academic activities. • Students are attracted to engineering modelling and research because they can easily get good jobs afterwards.
  12. 12. Perth College - UHI 28/10/2010 Engineering Modelling and Simulation B. Rakhshani Concluding Remarks • Modelling is today an equal partner with pure theory, observation (statistics), and pure experiments in the analysis and solution of engineering problems. • The availability of high performance computing (HPC) – inexpensive enough to be available on every researcher’s desk – has changed engineering analysis. • Engineering modelling is the most modern approach used for scientific research and engineering design. • Modelling and Simulation in engineering intend to report leading-edge scientific contributions from mathematics, computer science, various sub- disciplines of engineering, management, psychology and cross-cultural communication, all of which focus on the modelling and simulation of human- centred engineering systems.
