Abstract [en]

A major concern in the forest industry is impact on the soil caused by forest machines during harvesting. A six-wheel pendulum arm forwarder is being developed. The new forwarder aims at reducing soil damage by an even pressure distribution and smooth torque control and thereby also improving the working environment. The suspension contains pendulum arms on each wheel controlled by a hydraulic load sensing system in combination with accumulator.

A natural approach is to model each part of a system in the bestsuited software. In this case, the hydraulic system is modelled in the Hopsan simulation tool, while the vehicle mechanics is modelled in Adams. To understand the whole system it is necessary to simulate all subsystems together. An open standard for this is the Functional Mock-up Interface. This makes it possible to investigate the interaction between the hydraulic system and the multi-body mechanic model.

This paper describes how different simulation tools can be combined to support the development process. The technique is applied to the forwarder’s pendulum suspension. Controllers for height and soil force are optimized to minimize soil damage and maximize comfort for the operator.

Abstract [en]

Distributed system simulation can increase performance, re-usability and modularity in model-based product development. This thesis investigates four aspects of distributed simulation: multi-threaded simulations, simulation tool coupling, distributed equation solvers and parallel optimization algorithms.

Multi-threaded simulation makes it possible to split up the workload over several processing units. This reduces simulation time, which can save both time and money during the product development cycle. The transmission line element method (TLM) is used to decouple models to independent sub-models.

Different simulation tools are suitable for different problems. Tool coupling makes it possible to use the best suited tool for simulating each part of the whole product. Models from different tools can then be coupled into one aggregated simulation model. An emerging standard for tool coupling is the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI). It is investigated how this can be used in conjunction with TLM.

Equation-based object-oriented languages (EOOs) are becoming increasing popular. A logical approach is to let the equation solvers maintain the same structure that was used in the modelling process. Methods for achieving this using TLM and FMI are implemented and evaluated.

In addition to parallel simulations, it is also possible to use parallel optimization algorithms. This introduces parallelism on several levels. For this reason, an algorithm for profile-based multi-level scheduling is proposed.
