MANIP A Modelling and Simulation Tool for Thermal Engineers 891557
MANIP development aims at providing an interactive, integrated software environment for performing the thermal design of spacecrafts. The user of MANIP is expected to be a thermal engineer, not a programmer. This basic requirement determines the essence of MANIP and has a major impact on the requirements related to defining, refining and simulating a model, and subsequently analysing the simulation results.
The paper highlights the main aspects of implementation and use.
