The Coupled-Domain System Simulation/Simulatability Problem

Pages: 116 - 119

Keywords: system simulation, coupled-domain simulation

This paper discusses the diculties in current approaches to modeling and simulation of coupled-domain systems and presents new approaches and solutions to simulation execution and the model-simulation gap. The ongoing paradigm shift toward coupled-domain systems and total system simulation has spawned a wealth of activity in modeling efforts and languages with which to represent models, generally leaving simulation implementations taken for granted. New approaches to simulation of coupled-domain systems have been proposed, implemented and studied, independant of a standard modeling language. The notion of a `model compiler' is introduced to help bridge the growing gap between modeling and simulation.
