A HLA-Enabling Method in Collaborative Simulation Environment for Complex Product Development
HLA-based collaborative simulation is an effective way to integrate different disciplinary models together for the design and development of complex product. In this paper, the HLA-enabling method based on HLA agent model is proposed to make models created through commercial software compatible with HLA standard. Next, a prototype system for forging manipulator system based on such HLA-enabling method is developed accordingly, where an approach of developing ABAQUS engine agent is proposed, which solves the difficulty of wrapping ABAQUS software. Finally, a case study on forging and manipulating process is conducted and verifies the high fidelity and effectiveness of our collaborative simulation technology.
