About the book
This book aims to promote new research results in the field of simulation modelling - the process of creating and analyzing digital prototypes of physical models to predict their performances in the real world. With the development of computers and numerical approximation methods, simulation modeling has become a means of verifying various scientific and engineering theories, based on methods such as: 2D and 3D simulation modelling as digital prototype for design, analysis calculations, algorithms, finite element analysis, thermal, structural, and fluid. Based on analyses of the approximate working conditions by applying the simulation software, designers and engineers can understand whether, under what conditions, and in which ways a part could fail and what loads it can withstand. Based on simulation modelling, the researchers may optimize geometry for weight and strength, select materials and budget requirements, simulate part failure and identify the loading conditions that cause them, assess extreme environmental conditions or loads not easily tested on physical prototypes, such as earthquake shock load, or validate the likely safety and survival of a physical prototype. Researchers are invited to contribute on the following topics: theoretical aspects of simulation modelling, methodology and application of simulation modelling in different areas, simulation languages and environments. Relevant new theories, methods or algorithms, and their applications are encouraged.
