To overcome the challenges of test optimization, model validation, Intespace and Airbus Defence and Space teamed up to develop an integrated design and test collaborative platform based on the DynaWorks software platform, on one side, and the Systema-Thermica application on the other side.
The DynaWorks platform allows collecting in real time, monitor and process test results. The integration of the Systema-Thermica plugin provides a direct access to the Digital Mock-Up (DMU) and thermal prediction. Both platforms combined offer a comprehensive package for thermal prediction, test and correlation.
The Thermica 3D capabilities have been integrated in the DynaWorks framework to provide a unique environment for real time test monitoring, replay and test vs prediction comparison. The close connection between the 2 applications allows updating, in quasi real-time, the mathematical model of the unit under test with the inputs of the test results.
Therefore, the test thermal engineer benefits of an updated model and prediction in the DynaWorks test environment and is able to validate the model and shorten the test phase.
