Claytex exhibit and present two technical papers at the 13th Modelica Conference taking place in Germany in March.
The Modelica Conference is the main event for users, library developers, tool vendors and researchers to share their knowledge and learn about the latest scientific and industrial progress related to Modelica and to the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI). The programme will cover modelling of complex physical and cyber-physical systems, as well as tools, for a wide range of research and industrial applications. All contributions are peer-reviewed and selected by the Programme Committee.

Virtual Proving Ground Testing: Deploying Dymola and Modelica to recreate Full Vehicle Proving Ground Testing Procedures
Abstract – Physical testing of new automobiles is often a lengthy and expensive process. Capital costs associated with physical testing include production of prototype vehicles and travel to various locations around the world of personnel and equipment. Aside from the cost, the amount of resource time required to embark on a comprehensive testing programme is far from ideal, often constraining the product development process. The environmental impact of such testing programmes should also be considered.
This paper presents how the VeSyMA suite of Modelica libraries contains the necessary features to address the above concerns, by recreating 2 typical physical proving ground tests in the virtual world; a high speed accelerated durability test using a test track and rough-road structural testing.

Fault Insertion for Controller Calibration in a Range of Engine Models
Abstract – Predictive modelling is becoming increasingly popular to dimension or calibrate systems prior to the design stage. If current models are capable of modelling physical systems very accurately, they often only model the system’s expected behaviour. Some particular tasks like Engine Control Unit (ECU) calibration require the models to work abnormally too to make sure that the controller detects the faults (OBD diagnostics).
The aim of this paper is to introduce various faults in a multidomain (pneumatic, hydraulic, thermal, mechanical and electrical) engine model developed in Dymola to demonstrate that it is capable of detecting and identifying these faults and of taking measures to limit their effect and/or to prevent further damage to the system. One of the requirements if that the ECU should be able detect a fault solely from the measurements given by the physical sensors that are used throughout the model. Read more here
