The focus of the research is to produce connecting solutions of different CAE software products. This includes both, the incooperation of in-house tools (such as own design tools in Excel (incl. VBA, VBS), MatLab, python or even older codes or similar) and commercial software solutions (CFD solvers, FEM solvers, containment analyses...) in overall plant optimizations. Thereby e.g., coupling functions to load curves or complete integration solutions into a simulation of the entire plant process are used.
Practice shows: Especially the interface between the plant process technology and the plant component to be optimized plays an increasingly important role. The connection solutions developed by Fraunhofer UMSICHT enable industrial companies to reduce their use of resources. Based on the customer's ideas and wishes, we build a direct design or even quotation structure for new plant components or retrofits to be developed. Moreover, we do this with the objective of making this possible for unit numbers of one.
