Response Surface Models in Flowmaster



This webinar will consider the growing importance of control system software as an integral part of engineering systems in many industries and demonstrate how to use Flowmaster’s ability to export response surface models meets the challenges of developing control systems, simulators.

What You Will Learn

  • How to create and view a response surface in Flowmaster
  • How to export this to a portable response surface model (C-code or S-function)
  • How Flowmaster can support real-time simulators
  • How Flowmaster can integrate into the development of control systems

Who Should Attend

  • Anyone interested in exporting Flowmaster models as portable, stand-alone C-code or S-functions.
  • Anyone interested in real-time simulation of thermo-fluid networks
  • Anyone interested in control system development with thermo-fluid components in the plant or operating environment.

About the Presenter

Presenter Image David Hunt

David is the Product Architect and manages the Research, Design and Innovation Group for Flowmaster, a System CFD product in Mentor Graphics’ Mechanical Analysis Division. David has been working in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) for since the early 1990s when he developed CFD algorithms for external aerodynamics including:

  • Very Large Eddy Simulations on shock wave / turbulence interactions
  • Modeling external turbulent flows in aerospace and marine
  • Drag prediction
  • Quasi-unsteady methodologies for store release and propeller simulations.
  • Flow-Feature Extraction

More recently, David has worked extensively in mathematical modeling across a range of industries from decision support systems in the rail industry through to attitude control systems in the space sector.
