Impact of Recent Developments in Computer Technology on Modeling of Hydraulic Systems 831346
This paper presents a survey of recent developments in computer technology which impact modeling and simulation of hydraulic systems. Trends in design of Central Processing Units (CPU), mass storage and input/output devices are reviewed from a user's perspective. Their effect on current techniques of modeling and simulation, and presentation of results are examined.
Principles of operating systems are explained and application of data base management techniques for storing test data and other pertinent information is examined.
Finally, areas in which software for hydraulic system modeling could be enhanced are outlined.
