Modine Manufacturing Company
Modine Manufacturing Company is an independent, worldwide leader in heat-transfer and heat-storage technology serving vehicular, industrial, commercial, and
building-HVAC (heating, ventilating, air-conditioning) markets. Modine develops, manufactures, and markets heat exchangers and systems for use in various OEM (original equipment
manufacturer) applications and for sale to the automotive aftermarket (as replacement parts) and to a wide array of building markets.
Modelogics is developing a sophisticated air-conditioning and
refrigeration system sizing tool which will enable Modine to size heat exchangers and predict system performance with various combinations of equipment based on multiple design constraints
and with a precision not previously possible.
The simulation tool is based on Modelogics' Model Engineer Pro product and will contain a number of specialized Graphical User
Interfaces and software components unique to Modine.
Hamilton Sundstrand, a Division of United Technologies
Corporation, is a world class provider of advanced systems and products to aerospace and industrial markets. Last year, Modelogics supplied Hamilton Sundstrand with an application
that interfaces a Hamilton Sundstrand developed spreadsheet based analysis tool with a stand alone third party supplied application.
The Modelogics effort required the development of I/O interface
definitions, operating modes, iteration/convergence loops, data conversion methods, training and future integration with other programs. The application was developed using the Modelogics
flexible modeling architecture and Model Engineer toolkit.
Modelogics is currently working with Hamilton Sundstrand engineers to apply Model Engineer to their system modeling methodology.
