    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    A program package developed for dynamic simulation of radiator networks is described. The package comprises interactive simulation control and definition of network structure and network components. Model input and model execution are separated. The network to be simulated can be modified without programming by only changing the input data. The program modules formulate the equations solved according to the data given by the user. the equations used in solution are arranged so that the sparsity of the resulting matrix equation can be utilized. Fast solution modules can be generated for networks with static configuration. A description of the program and an example of using the program in analysis of the heat emission of radiators taking into account heat losses from pipes are presented.
