CFD Modelling as an Integrated Part of Multi-Level Simulation of Process Plants – Semantic Modelling Approach

Marek Gayer, Juha Kortelainen and Tommi Karhela

The 2010 Summer Computer Simulation Conference (SCSC 10)
Ottawa, Canada, July 11-14, 2010


In this paper, we present our computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling and simulation environment, which is designed to be suitable for integration to a large-scale system level simulation tools for industry process simulation of plants, such as Apros 6 software. We discuss about the coupling possibilities of these simulations and further concentrate on the description of our pre- processing, fluid solver integration, and post-processing within the open source Simantics integration platform. We present the semantic data model and ontologies for describing simulation models and their relations. We discuss about suitable open source software component candidates, realisation of geometry, mesh, case configuration, boundary conditions, solvers, and visualization parts. Finally, we present our proposal implementation based on Eclipse Rich Client Platform. In addition, because we rely on open source software tools, our proposals could be especially interesting for developments in the area of general process simulators, which might be eventually extended with more detailed 3D simulation models.
