Context Presentation

When a complex system requires the use of different components specified by different designers working on different domains, this greatly increases the number of virtual prototypes. These different components unfortunately tend to remain too independent of each other, thus preventing both different designers from collaborating and their systems from being interconnected to perform one or more tasks that could not be accomplished by one of these elements only. Co-simulation is the coupling of several simulation tools where each manages a part of a modular problem that allows each designer to interact with the complex system in order to maintain his business expertise and continue to use his own digital tools. For this co-simulation to work, the ability to exchange data between tools significantly, called interoperability, is required. We participate in the design of a co-simulation system that integrates di ff erent tools of simulation-trades based on the modeling of the behavior of devices like energy simulation and the simulation of wear of building materials within the same platform

Scientific Goals

- Take into account the concepts of architecture, communication (between simulators or with users) and visualization to define architectural models

- Architecture analysis managing interoperability

- Validation of this architecture and development of a tool for verifying certain properties of the architecture, such as coherence and semantics
