At the center of the “Simulation and Digital Twins” colloquium was the question of how to better monitor processes and plants using digital twins, and how simulations offer completely new possibilities for 3D production. At the beginning, Professor Bletzinger from the Technical University of Munich presented results and experiences concerning the use of “Simulation and Digital Twins” in the field of civil engineering (Chair of Statics). In addition to the use in surface tension analysis, areas of application of the simulation as well as the digital twins, such as within the “bridge design” were presented.
Moritz Krügener then reported on the results of the BGCE project “Machine learning and simulation for grid optimization”.
Senior Principal Scientist Dirk Hartmann continued to show industrial applications of digital twins in the field of “engine monitoring”. He also presented the results of the Campus AD project on “Simulation Methods for Milling Robots” – more information can be found here .
Stefan Gavranovic then presented his doctoral results, which he prepared in cooperation with Siemens AG and the Technical University of Munich in the area of ”Interactive topology optimization for multiphysics problems”. Following successful results validation, he will implement GPU-based topology optimization as an add-on within the Siemens PLM software following his PhD.
Finally, Kilian Vernickel, who is researching together with Fraunhofer IGCV and the Technical University of Munich as part of his PhD in “Synchronizing material flow simulation over the product lifecycle”, presented the first results.View Article
