Developing an HLA-based naval maneuvering simulation

This paper discusses the main issues involved in developing a high level architecture (HLA)-based distributed simulation while presenting an application called Naval Surface Tactical Maneuvering Simulation System (NSTMSS), which is intended to serve as a testbed for HLA and distributed interactive simulation (DIS) research. NSTMSS provides a networked virtual environment (NVE) for naval surface actions in which new formations can be evaluated and tested and present ones can be practiced and analyzed. This paper also describes a development lifecycle for HLA-based distributed interactive simulations and reflects best practices.


Numerical modeling of re-suspension and transport of fine sediments in coastal waters
Karadoğan, Erol; Özhan, Erdal; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, the theory of three dimensional numerical modeling of transport and re-suspension of fine sediments is studied and a computer program is develped for simulation of the three dimensional suspended sediment transport. The computer program solves the three dimensional advection-diffusion equation simultaneously with a computer program prepared earlier for the simulation of three dimensional current systems. This computer program computes the velocity vectors, eddy viscosities and water surface ...
Modeling and simulation of a maneuvering ship
Pakkan, Sinan; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
This thesis documents the studies conducted in deriving a mathematical model representing the dynamics of a maneuvering ship to be implemented as part of an interactive real-time simulation system, as well as the details and results of the implementation process itself. Different effects on the dynamics of ship motions are discussed separately, meaning that the effects are considered to be applied to the system one at a time and they are included in the model simply by the principle of superposition. The mo...
Experimental and numerical analysis of a TLP floating offshore wind turbine
Oğuz, Elif; Day, Alexander H.; Incecik, Atilla; Amate Lopez, Juan; Sánchez, Gustavo; Gonzalez Almeria, Gonzalo (Elsevier BV, 2018-01-01)
This paper describes an experimental and numerical investigation of the Iberdrola TLP wind turbine concept, TLPWINID, in realistic wind and wave conditions. The TLP was coupled to the NREL 5 MW reference turbine and was designed to operate in a water depth of 70 m. The test campaign included free oscillation tests, tests in regular and irregular waves and simulated wind conditions.
Development of a micro-fabrication process simulator for micro-electro-mechanical systems(mems)
Yıldırım, Alper; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
The aim of this study is to devise a computer simulation tool, which will speed-up the design of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems by providing the results of the micro-fabrication processes in advance. Anisotropic etching along with isotropic etching of silicon wafers are to be simulated in this environment. Similarly, additive processes like doping and material deposition could be simulated by means of a Cellular Automata based algorithm along with the use of OpenGL library functions. Equipped with an inte...
Development of a multigrid accelerated euler solver on adaptively refined two- and three-dimensional cartesian grids
Çakmak, Mehtap; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
Cartesian grids offer a valuable option to simulate aerodynamic flows around complex geometries such as multi-element airfoils, aircrafts, and rockets. Therefore, an adaptively-refined Cartesian grid generator and Euler solver are developed. For the mesh generation part of the algorithm, dynamic data structures are used to determine connectivity information between cells and uniform mesh is created in the domain. Marching squares and cubes algorithms are used to form interfaces of cut and split cells. Geome...
