Modelon Launches Jet Propulsion Library

LUND, Sweden, June 6, 2017 – Modelon, a premier provider of software solutions, including state-of-the-art model libraries that accelerate development time and easy integration, has announced the release of the newest library, the Jet Propulsion Library. The jet engine, a key source for power on-board aircraft, couples the opportunity for substantial performance improvements with the challenge of mastering the underlying physics. Developed to assist engineers working for jet engine developers and manufacturers, Modelon’s Jet Propulsion Library offers a comprehensive set of components that empower cycle performance analysis and optimization of all types of aerospace gas turbines.

Modelon’s Jet Propulsion Library also offers model-based design of integrated aircraft systems, leveraging model assets across the design cycle from on/off design computations via transient simulation. This open and modular approach enables integration with all relevant sub-systems and physical domains, such as thermal management and fuel systems. Modelon’s open-standard structure enables this model-based design approach.

“Our goal at Modelon is to provide the most comprehensive systems engineering simulations for every industry we serve – this library launch is a key deliverable that benefits aerospace organizations,” said Michael Sielemann, Modelon’s aerospace industry director. “The addition of the Jet Propulsion Library and recent enhancements to Fuel Systems and Environmental Control Libraries displays our commitment to developing and deploying solutions that help organizations simulate the interactions of multiple complex systems in aerospace design.”

Enhancements to the Fuel Systems Library and Environmental Control Library include:

  • Addedability to import complex, real-world tank geometries from CAD, enabling substantial fidelity advances due to more accurate computation of liquid free surface, wetting of fluid flanges
  • Increased detailed models and physics behavior with focus on thermal management essential for addressing critical performance and capability constraints on the whole aircraft level
  • Improved usability – offering a better user experience with expanded documentation for the contents

These enhancements, coupled with the Jet Propulsion Library release, enable users to realistically model the complex geometries and behaviors associated fuel systems and environmental control.
