Functional mockup unit adaptation for HLA-compliant distributed simulation

Yılmaz, Faruk
Conceptual design of systems require aggregate level simulations of the designed system in its operational setting. Thus, performance of the system and its interactions with the other entities in its environment can be evaluated. The complex and heterogeneous nature of these simulations often requires distributed execution. IEEE 1516 High Level Architecture (HLA) is a widely accepted standard architecture for distributed aggregate level simulations. Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) is a recent standardization effort that leads to a tool independent systems simulation interface enabling model reuse and co-simulation. This thesis aims to present a method for adapting FMI-compliant units to HLA. The presented method enables a Functional Mock-up Unit to join an HLA-compliant federation as a member.
