Motion-Structural Analysis of Systems Using Digital Twins
- 112 Downloads
Digital Twins enable the analysis of systems under real world conditions using multiphysics models, sensors and bidirectional data connections between the digital and its physical twin. At the Research Lab of the Department of Computer Integrated Design (DiK) of Technische Universität Darmstadt, a Digital Twin demonstrator was developed that enables a motion-structural simulation of a bending beam test bench. The approach provides proof of many of the claimed benefits and challenges through a comprehensible Digital Twin system.

The demonstrator is part of the project “Smart Components within Smart Production Processes and Environments (SCoPE)” within the Brazilian-German Collaborative Research Initiative on Smart Connected Manufacturing (BRAGECRIM) funded by DFG. Other institutes involved in this project are the Laboratory for Computer Integrated Design and Manufacturing of the Methodist University of Piracicaba and the Department of Production Engineering of the Polytechnic School of the University of Sao Paulo.
