In the context of the industrial internet of things and preventative maintenance the need for accurate and novel simulation models is constantly increasing. Therefore, advancing simulation methods and their experimental validation are the focus of the “Simulation Development & Validation” research group.
Independent of the component or system, it is crucial to begin with the underlying physics before starting to build or develop a model in a computational environment. Nevertheless, in some instances empirical data for model abstraction is inevitable. In either case, the numerical model necessitates validation using experimental set-ups. The choice of the experimental set-up plays a fundamental role in terms of a time and resource efficient model development process.
Whenever possible, simulation results at ifas are validated with experimental data. Wherever state of the art tools reach their limits, new or enhanced simulation tools and methods can be researched and developed. Our experience with multifold projects, various simulation environments and a well-equipped test field allow us to efficiently set-up and validate simulations for complex systems as well as specific detached physical phenomena.
Although fluid power machines and phenomena have been developed and researched for many decades, the holistic simulation including every detail or physical property is not yet possible. The current research scope includes, e.g., gap heights in displacement machines, cavitation, sealing mechanisms, rubber sealing fatigue or gas injection systems. The accurate research and simulation of fluid power phenomena, components and systems will be essential to reach the goals of IIoT in hydraulics and pneumatics.
