Brad Carman is a Mechanical Engineer at Instron specializing in System Modeling and Thermal Fluids with focus on model and software development for the Crash Simulation and Structural Durability products.
Previously traditional modeling tools were used to provide the acausal modeling framework which could be statically compiled and integrated with our distributed software. But with this comes the dual language problem and friction with model research and development. With ModelingToolkit.jl the tools needed to transition from traditional modeling frameworks are now available. This talk will cover our approach and success in re-writing our Hydraulic Crash Simulation system model in pure Julia.
