Computer-aided modeling, simulation and optimization of technical systems
If the examination of a real object is impossible or requires great effort, a model comes in handy. It breaks down the object’s properties and creates conditions that make an analysis more feasible. Systems consist of several elements which interact with each other. A simulation is an experiment with a model which helps to make predictions about a system’s behavior under certain conditions. The physically-correct simulation model should be designed in a way that the technical aspects at hand can sufficiently represent realistic behavior. Only then can computer simulation provide realistic results for various scenarios at much lower costs. Long time intervals and numerous variations can be calculated through computer-based simulation in no time.
