Modeling and Simulation in Engineering (MSEng'09)

Part of the 2009 Spring Simulation Multiconference (SpringSim'09)

Sponsored by:
The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS)

March 22 - 27, 2009

Doubletree Hotel San Diego-Mission Valley
San Diego, CA

This track will provide a forum for papers that address the use of modeling and simulation within engineering principles. Simulation replaces more and more the traditional experimentation. Where until recently prototypes were created to conduct experiments, virtual prototypes are increasingly used in support of the engineering process. Instead of doing real crash tests, initial test are done in the computer. Instead of building real ship hulls, the influence of seamines is simulated. Before new toll booths are erected, traffic simulation evaluates the regional effects first. However, in order to support this use of M&S in engineering, the simulation must fulfill certain requirements, such as being verified and validated for the particular use, or that all data can be obtained in the required form and with the right content. To establish a common view on what is needed for M&S to play this essential and important real-world role, the forum is looking for papers from practitioners and academia, dealing with related topics, such as

  •  validation ad verification for experiments
  •  experimental design with simulation systems
  •  sensitivity analysis for experimental support
  •  requirements for M&S in the context of engineering
  •  M&S in the lifecycle of engineering support of systems
  •  obtaining data for M&S experiments
  •  interface design for mixed experiments (real systems and virtual systems)
  •  management tasks in support of virtual and mixed testing
