The GEM Modelling Methodology
This GEM deliverable D1201 describes the Modelling Methodology adopted by and applied in the ESPIRIT Project No. 8894 – GEM. GEM is the acronym for Generic Engineering-analysis Model.
The methodology can be applied to integrate software applications in the context of Engineering-analysis in an open, ISO-STEP-compliant way. These applications cover in the first place:-
- Product Analysis Modellers
- Mesh Generators
- Analysis Packages and/or Modules, and
On the boundary we find CAD Systems or the more advanced Product Design Modellers which might also be integrated to provide the relevant input to the Engineering-analysis process.
The result of applying the methodology is referred to as an Open-Engineering-analysis System (OES). This might be changed during the project.
