BOM Ontology-Based Composite Modeling Approach for Simulation Model

It is an efficient way for developing models by composition of reusable components. Successful composition of models means correct in both syntactic and semantic level. Base Object Model (BOM) facilitates and improves the semantic information of simulation model, and its purpose is to improve reusability and composition. However, there is no sufficient information for BOM matching in semantic level because that BOM has no rich and clear semantic information. In this paper BOM ontology is built to enhance BOM semantic information leaving the BOM unaltered by using ontology and an iterative approach is proposed to reduce the complexity of composition. The approach mainly consists of three phases: transformation from conceptual model to event classification model; model search; model matching and composition. Finally, we demonstrate this through a simple simulation system. The result shows that this approach is effective and can simplify the composition of ontologies.

Recovering Three-Dimensional Surfaces with Multi-images Shape-From-Shading Method

Three-dimensional (3-D) shape reconstruction is one of the fundamental problems in the field of computer version. Most existing shape-from-shading (SFS) methods are based on signal image and orthogonal projection. But the reflectance map equation is a nonlinear partial differential equation about two random variables. So the SFS is an ill-posed problem. Further more, orthogonal projection used to simulate the imaging processes of camera is not very accurate. This paper proposes a new SFS method under perspective projection with multi-images. Three images with different lighting source directions are captured by camera firstly. Following three reflectance map equations which are described by Lambertain model are established. Then the gradient vectors of the 3-D surface are calculated by solving the reflectance map equations. The gray constraint and gradient component constraint conditions are used to construct target function, and the corresponding Eulor-Poision equations are derived. Simultaneously, discrete difference is used to approximate differential operation. New iterative 3-D shape reconstruction algorithm is proposed by the discrete difference equation. Three pixel values are used to solve certain gradient value in our method. So the ill-posed problem in traditional SFS which solves a single reflectance map equation can be avoided. At last, experimental results of 3-D reconstruction show that the proposed method is effective.

A Non-linearity Correction Method for Calibration of Optical Sensor at Low Level Light

This paper describes a methodology developed for calibrating optical detector for light engineering, especially for devices used at low level light, including auroral imager, star sensor, astronomical camera and similar optical instruments. In order to know the physical meaning of optical sensor output, calibration is the first and most important process in a complete analysis of observed data. It is found that optical sensors, like CCDs, are not perfectly linear systems as they were assumed. After bias frame subtraction, the number of ADU counts is not exactly proportional to the number of incident photons. A key component of this paper is non-linearity correction. One of current applications using this method is auroral imager which is used for measuring aurora, high-altitude clouds, and other atmospheric optical objects light intensity, which is the first step to complete an optical object tomography simulation.

Investigation of Eddy Diffusivity in a Reactive Plane Jet by Using Direct Numerical Simulation

Eddy diffusivity in a planar turbulent jet with a second-order chemical reaction (A+B→R) is investigated by using direct numerical simulation. Reactant A and B are premixed into the jet flow and the main flow, respectively. The eddy diffusivity of species A on the jet centerline is calculated from the mean concentration of species A and the streamwise turbulent mass flux of the species A. The results show that the chemical reaction makes the eddy diffusivity of species A small, and the effects of the chemical reaction on the eddy diffusivity depend on the Damköhler number. From these results, we can conclude that the gradient diffusion model should be used with considerations of the effects of chemical reactions on eddy diffusivity.

A Temporal Coherence Based Framework for Visualizing Time-Varying Unstructured Volume with PBVR

Time-varying visualization is always an important topic in the field of scientific visualization. Due to the large data size and complex grid, the unstructured time-varyingvisualization is still a hard problem. In this paper, we propose atemporal coherence based framework for visualizing large-scale time-varying unstructured volumewith the Particle-based volume rendering (PBVR).PBVR is a visibility sorting free rendering method, which can render a large-scale unstructured grid dataset efficiently. However, the pre-process of PBVR, which is to generate particles from the original volume, can always cost too much time. To overcome this problem, we utilize the temporal coherence between consecutive time steps to decrease the particle generation time.After the particle generation, we also compress the particle data before it is stored in hard disk. In account of the compressed data size, the loading time of the particle data during the rendering process is decreased obviously.And after the loading of the particle data, our system can render the data as an animation very smoothly by utilizing the LOD control of PBVR.We applied our system to rendering of 465 time steps of 3,676,828 hexahedral cell grid dataset to confirm the effectiveness.

An Efficiency-Driven Deterministic Optimization Approach for Sensor Placement in Image-Based Forest Field Measurement

In forest management, one key objective of forest field measurement is to measure the Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) of each tree in a specified area. Nowadays the widely employed way is to measure the trees manually one by one which usually takes several days. However much work can be considerably saved by adopting image based measurement approach which includes several steps. Among these steps, careful planning of the sensor placement is an essential preparation step which has significant impact on the effectiveness of the following steps. In this paper, a concept named Trees Per Location (TPL) is proposed to evaluate the efficiency in sensor placement. Based on TPL, we present a novel automatic sensor placement algorithm suitable for image based forest field measurement. The key feature of the proposed algorithm is that the impact of the camera orientation on optical constraints is attenuated due to the fact that in outdoors, the orientation of camera is not easy to control compared with the location of camera. Our method generates a plan composed of a series of sensor viewpoints and a shortest path that traverses each viewpoint exactly once. The plan guarantees that the total number of images needed to be taken is minimum and the travel distance of the path is the shortest while our plan satisfies the constraint that each tree appears in at least one image without being blocked by any other trees. Experiments are carried out on a sample forest from the PlotNet database and a real forest in order to compare the proposed TPL with other mainstream algorithms and validate the proposed method for DBH measurement.

hMETIS-Based Offline Road Network Partitioning

Distributed transportation simulation is an important technology for evaluating large-scale traffic applications and control policies, before they are implemented in real-world traffic systems. Offline road network partitioning is the first step towards distributed transportation simulation. Currently, road network portioning algorithms, like METIS, are designed to reduce the execution time. However, a slower execution time is acceptable for offline road network partitioning, if it leads to more efficient road network partitions. This paper introduces

hMETIS-based offline road network partitioning

. One experiment based on Singapore expressways shows that compared with the famous METIS-based offline road network partitioning, hMETIS-based offline road network partitioning reduces the number of vehicles crossing partitions by 9.8% on average, with a similar load imbalance and an acceptable execution time. For distributed traffic simulations, where there are large amount of data exchanged between partitions,

hMETIS-based offline road network partitioning

is one candidate solution to reduce the simulation time and increase the scalability.

A Fast Intuitionistic Fuzzy Support Vector Machine Algorithm and Its Application in Wind Turbine Gearboxes Fault Diagnosis

Support vector machine has been successfully applied to the fault diagnosis field, but there are still some problems in practical applications. In this paper we proposed an improved algorithm which reduces the number of support vectors through the reduction of the sample spae to improve the efficiency of the algorithm. As the traditional fuzzy support vector machine cannot classify the sample with the same membership, so we use intuition index to lower the probability of the sample to get the same membership. Here we improve the accuracy of the algorithm through properly redefine the fuzzy membership and intuition index. Finally, we use the improved algorithm to build a multi-classifier based on one against one principle and the voting rules, and apply the multi-classification algorithm to the wind turbine gearbox fault diagnosis. The diagnose results prove that the improved algorithm we proposed can properly resolve the problem of wind turbine gearboxes fault diagnosis.

Real-Time Visualization for Large Scale Terrain Based on Linear Quadtree

To solve the problem of low frame rate and high memory space cost in large scale terrain visualization, a real-time rendering algorithm based on linear quadtree is proposed in this paper. It consists of three parts. Firstly, digital elevation models (DEMs) are de-sampled to get the same size blocks, terrain pyramid model is built with different scales and biases factors offline. Then linear quadtree index of terrain blocks is created for fast query, a more reasonable scheduling scheme is defined, and every frame only allowed loading one terrain block in order to avoid unstable rendering quality. Finally, GPU-based morphing method is applied to slow down vertex popping; vertical skirt is used to eliminate crack. Compared with Geomipmapping algorithm, the experimental results show the proposed algorithm could drop down memory space, GPU processing time and GPU rendering batches significantly, and the rendering rate is high and smooth.

First, we use Plessy operator to extract feature points from two images and to calculate the match points using the area correlation matching method. Then the linear interpolation method with the shortest distance is used to interpolate the calculated motion vector to obtain dense fluid motion vector result. At last, we use the fluid continuity equation to optimize the dense fluid motion vector field to obtain dense and more accurate fluid motion vector calculation results. Further experimental results show that this method has the characteristic of simple and accurate. It is a valid method of fluid motion calculating and be used in the application of fluid simulation and virtual reality study.

Optimization of Space Color Mapping Using Compactly Supported Radial Basis Functions for Color Reproduction

Colors play an important role for customers to find their preference. The perception of the color depends on the devices used to show the colors and it changes with the color transformation between one device and another. This paper proposes an optimization of the Compactly-Supported Radial Basis Functions (CSRBF) space mapping to minimize the error in the color conversion between the system and the printer color spaces. A clustering k-means method is used to select the representative data in the printer color space to reproduce the whole space with high accuracy. The calculation of optimized CSRBF parameters using the representative data is proposed to minimize the color difference between the predicted CSRBF color value and the printed color value of all data in the printer color space. Proposed optimization method finds the optimized CSRBF parameters values and the optimal weighting parameters for color differences evaluation.

The Mechanism of Abnormal Detection and Distributed Localization of Nodes Based on Trust Management in WSN

The fault of Beacon nodes, as well as the interference in radio channel environment, will all affect the performance of localization. To eliminate these interference factors, a new distributed localization algorithm is proposed based on trust management. Firstly the algorithm splits WSN into several clusters with a certain cluster protocol, and then initiates the global trust rating (GTR) and local trust rating (LTR) of Beacon nodes. To get more precise location, it needs to localize frequently and update the GTR and LTR of beacon nodes. Theoretical analysis and simulation results show that the method can not only improve the precision of the positioning, but can also be used to examine abnormal beacon nodes and infer possible interference factors in wireless channel.

Behavior Event Flow Analysis: A Method of Combat Simulation Creditability Evaluation

Credibility is an important part of combat simulation research, which restricts application qualities of simulation in the operational decision-making. Most of credibility evaluation methods measure the credibility by analyzing gap between simulation results and actual results, but the actual results of combat cannot be predicted. This paper brings forward a credibility evaluation method based on behavior event flow analysis, using the same form of event flow graph models to describe the battle course in simulation and theory. According to the merger thoughts, this paper also gives a strategy of contrast between the two event flow models, which can measure the flow rationality of simulation models by analyzing the event coverage degree and process matching degree between simulation logic models and theoretic logical models.

A Simulation Model Validation Method Based on Design of Experiments

When simulation factors are numerous while real-world observed data are sparse, the issue of validating the simulation models is problematic. An extreme case is focused that limited real-world observations are available cross the factor space, and only a single replicate is available on per simulation factor setting. A method based on design of experiments is proposed by which the validation experiments could be well arranged across the factor space through optimal design. The p-value test technology is employed to evaluate the statistical consistency of the static data, and for a set of validation experiments obtained by DoE, the combined analysis of all the p-values resulted from these experiments can be taken based on the inverse-CDF theorem, to make an overall characterization of degree of the simulation credibility on the entire factor space. An example of validation of a guided missile simulation is taken to demonstrate that the method is useful.

A Consistency Test Method for Simulation Data Considering Shape and Distance of Series

By utilizing contrasting results between simulation data and reference data, dynamic consistency test of simulation results is an important content of model validation. In this paper, a novel consistency test method considering shape and distance of series is proposed. Based on the analysis of dynamic consistency test problem, an improved grey relational grade model is established to assess the dynamic consistency among series, which considered the shape and distance of series as two main attributes. The consistency is tested in view of similarity and nearness between series to accomplish overall test task. Meanwhile, the method is effective to test the consistency for the two sets of simulation series being symmetric of reference data. Finally, an example of consistency test for launch current of electromagnetic railgun is given to illustrate that the improved method is effective and practical for assessment of dynamic consistency of simulation data.

Research on Credibility Evaluation Framework of Manned-Spaceflight Training Simulator

A Manned-Spaceflight Training Simulator (MSTS) was the main training platform for Chinese astronauts. To determine the effectiveness of the training, simulation credibility of the MSTS must be verified. Therefore, this paper aims to establish a simulation credibility evaluation framework for an MSTS. Through reviewing existing evaluation systems, the evaluation framework for an MSTS was fundamentally established according to the training purpose of the simulator and the astronaut’s perspective. The framework contains two parts: static simulation and dynamic simulation, which can evaluate simulation credibility from visual, audio, and psychomotor sensory experience. The applicability and accuracy of the framework was basically proved by a questionnaire given to selected users of the MSTS and technical experts. Using this evaluation framework, the simulation credibility of an MSTS can be thoroughly scientifically tested.

Safety Analysis of Computer-Controlled Real-Time Systems with Message Loss Using Communicating DEVS Models

The Communication DEVS formalism is an analysis means for discrete event systems modeled by DEVS formalism which has been widely used as a system theoretical specification. This paper proposes a new method for analyzing safety of real-time discrete event systems using communicating DEVS formalism. It is a part of efforts toward a unified method for modeling, simulation, and logical analysis based on the DEVS formalism and associate theory. For safety analysis of such real-time discrete event systems we first define communicating DEVS and then propose a timed reachability analysis algorithm for the models. The algorithm visits all possible timed states of the model, which is not always possible by using a simulation based state traversal. The proposed method can be well used especially for DEVS-specified systems to check various logical properties such safety, liveness and so on. A case study of a safety analysis for a rail road crossing system illustrates the usefulness of the proposed method.

Study on Markov Chain-Based System Readiness Assessment Method

System readiness level (SRL) is used to measure the maturity of a system technical scenario so as to cover the shortage of Technical Readiness Level (TRL) by adopting Integration Readiness Level (IRL). When SRL is calculated based on TRL and IRL, the maturity of the Critical Technology Elements (CTEs) and their interplay would change with time going on. Thus, when SRL is calculated based on TRL/IRL, it may have time lags and the decision made according to the SRL will be also out of time. It may cost a large quantity of time and money. In order to solve the problem, markov chain is adopted. The concept of initial distribution, transition probability matrix and stationary distribution are used to describe and obtain the initial and stationary TRL/IRL/SRL. The markov chain-based System Readiness Assessment (SRA) method can reduce the time lag of the TRL/IRL/SRL. Thanks to the advantage, decision can be made more accurately and scientifically. An illustrative example is given to test and verify the method. The method is easy to operate and can be generalized to other field.

Pre-motion Based VR Object Manipulation

Definitions and Preliminary Experiments

In this paper, we propose a new method to manipulate objects by using user’s pre-motion in a VR environment. Users are provided with an instinctually easy interface to VR with using their natural behaviors as their commands for manipulating VR objects. Hand pre-shaping is known as human’s unconscious behavior to face a small object to be grasped. The definitions of pre-motions are determined by users’ initial behaviors. Therefore, we present the definitions to classify characteristics of the kinds of objects and pre-motions.Using the above definitions, we develop a prototype system to validate the classifications. Consequently, manipulating VR objects by pre-motion is possible and promising.

3D Gesture-Based View Manipulator for Large Scale Entity Model Review

Hand gesture-based Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is one of the most natural and intuitive methods of communication between humans and machines because it closely mimics how humans interact with each other. Its intuitiveness and naturalness are needed to explore extensive and complex data or virtual realities. We developed a 3D gesture interface to manipulate the display of a 3D entity model. For gesture recognition, we use the Kinect as a depth sensor to acquire depth image frames. We track the position of the user’s skeleton in each frame and detect preset gestures. By simple gestures, the user can pan, zoom, rotate, and reset the view and freely navigate inside the 3D entity model in the virtual space. The proposed gesture interface is integrated with the stereoscopic 3D model viewer that we have previously developed for 3D model review.
