Simulation experiments are an essential part of computational science and engineering. The use of simulation models is widely adopted by practitioners from diverse areas of applied sciences. Nevertheless, simulations are rarely replicated due to reuse and maintenance challenges related to models and data. In this respect, we propose that crucial and labor intensive parts of simulation experiments could be supported by model transformations. This work focuses on model-driven engineering practices to enable replicable and reusable simulation experiments. These practices are used to devote researchers' time to analyze the system under investigation rather than dealing with low level details to create a working environment. The results of our framework development work are presented.


Modeling cultures of the embedded software industry: feedback from the field
Akdur, Deniz; Say, Bilge; Demirörs, Onur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-06-01)
Engineering of modern embedded systems requires complex technical, managerial and operational processes. To cope with the complexity, modeling is a commonly used approach in the embedded software industry. The modeling approaches in embedded software vary since the characteristics of modeling such as purpose, medium type and life cycle phase differ among systems and industrial sectors. The objective of this paper is to detail the use of a characterization model MAPforES ("Modeling Approach Patterns for Embe...
Towards interoperable and composable trajectory simulations: an ontology-based approach
Durak, U.; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Algin, C. Koksal; Ozdikis, O. (Informa UK Limited, 2011-08-01)
Trajectory simulation is a software module that computes the flight path and flight parameters of munitions. It is used throughout the engineering process, including simulations for studying the design trade-offs, to mission simulations for defended area analysis. In this wide application domain, reuse has always been one of the challenges of the trajectory simulation community. We apply an ontology-based simulation development methodology to fulfil the functional requirements of a trajectory simulation whi...
Numerical simulation of solidification kinetics in A356/SiCp composites for assessment of as-cast particle distribution
CETIN, Arda; Kalkanlı, Ali (Elsevier BV, 2009-06-01)
The present work is aimed at studying the effect of solidification rate on reinforcement clustering in particle reinforced metal matrix composites (PMMCs) through numerical simulations and experimental studies. A macrotransport-solidification kinetics (MTSK) model was used to simulate the solidification kinetics of the PMMCs. The experimental validation of the numerical model was achieved through the Newtonian and Fourier thermal analysis methods. Results reveal that the MTSK model can be successfully used ...
Non-autonomous equations with unpredictable solutions
Akhmet, Marat (Elsevier BV, 2018-06-01)
To make research of chaos more amenable to investigating differential and discrete equations, we introduce the concepts of an unpredictable function and sequence. The topology of uniform convergence on compact sets is applied to define unpredictable functions [1,2]. The unpredictable sequence is defined as a specific unpredictable function on the set of integers. The definitions are convenient to be verified as solutions of differential and discrete equations. The topology is metrizable and easy for applica...
Modelling and predicting binding affinity of PCP-like compounds using machine learning methods
Erdaş, Özlem; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
Machine learning methods have been promising tools in science and engineering fields. The use of these methods in chemistry and drug design has advanced after 1990s. In this study, molecular electrostatic potential (MEP) surfaces of PCP-like compounds are modelled and visualized in order to extract features which will be used in predicting binding affinity. In modelling, Cartesian coordinates of MEP surface points are mapped onto a spherical self-organizing map. Resulting maps are visualized by using values...
