Abstract:

Integrated weapon systems modeling and simulation from concept to operation were treated as essential tool for achieving cost and time reductions which are needed to field new systems. Such tools are being applied to lower the cost and design cycle times from both a designdevelopment and recurring manufacturing perspective. Early identification of problems dramatically reduces costs and improves procurement as well as operations, increasing performance as well as cost effectiveness. The maturing of virtual manufacturing tools led to the review of the various approaches in the NATO framework. Advanced simulation in design, manufacture, and support were treated in four sessions on Virtual Prototyping and Simulation Tool Integration Qualification by Analysis Design Synthesis Avoiding cost overruns and schedule delays connected to aerodynamic or hydrodynamic performance was treated in three sessions CFD Modelling Of Non-Linear Phenomena CFD Validation Procedures And Error Evaluation Dynamically Coupled CFD.
