Title: A Simulation-Based Digital Twin for Model-Driven Health Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance of an Automotive Braking System
Authors: Ryan Magargle, Lee Johnson, Padmesh Mandloi, Peyman Davoudabadi, Omkar Kesarkar, Sivasubramani Krishnaswamy, John Batteh and Anand Pitchaikani
Abstract:This paper describes a model-driven approach to support heat monitoring and predictive maintenance of an automotive braking system. This approach includes the creation of a simulation-based digital twin that combines models and different modeling formalisms into an integrated model of the braking system that can be used for monitoring, diagnostics, and prognostics. The paper provides an overview of the basic models including Modelica models, reduced order models for various key components of the system model, and controls and sensor models. The simulation results include both baseline results for the system and the results of injecting failures into the system for monitoring and predictive maintenance.

Title: The Jet Propulsion Library: Modeling and simulation of aircraft engines
Authors: Michael Sielemann, Anand Pitchaikani, Nithish Selvan and Majed Sammak
Abstract:The Jet Propulsion Library provides a foundation for modeling and simulation of jet engines, and the model-based design of integrated aircraft systems. It provides a fully rigorous foundation for sizing and performance computations, and provides a number of advantages over existing domain-specific solutions due to the use of the Modelica language. This paper provides an introduction and overview of the new library and describes an application in the design of a turbo fan engine.
