In the DLR, simulation has been used to solve specific scientific problems in aviation and aerospace for many years. The necessary algorithms and models are developed individually for each project. However, they are not or only partially re-used for subsequent projects. The current situation in the aerospace institutes is that:
On the other hand, the implemented knowledge in these models represent a considerable aerospace know-how, which makes the systematic reuse in current and future aerospace projects of DLR mandatory.
The project SimMoLib develops a library prototype for simulation models in the whole DLR. In this library models should be stored only, which are verified, validated, and documented extensively. In addition, the possibilities of user support shall be examined.
DLR Simulation and Software Technology Tasks
In addition to administration, the DLR department Simulation and Software Technology is responsible for the selection of software technologies for the library and for building the library. Also preliminary work in the field of metamodels and verification/validation of simulation models is task of DLR Simulation and Software Technology.
