The IOSB team and their partners are developing a freely available simulation platform, which is based upon three essential concepts: A modular and easy-to-expand software architecture, an intuitive and gradual usability, and the use of levels of detail.
The special feature of the OCTANE concept is the individual adaptability of the simulation to particular requirements concerning computational effort, result quality, usability and available data. This is ensured by a modular and expandable software architechture, as well as by an intuitive usability adapted to various user backgrounds, and by the use of independent levels of detail. Moreover, due to the free availability of the source code, OCTANE provides the user with the possibility of making any adaptions of the simulation, integrating any new functionality and examining the underlying simluation models.
An overview of OCTANE can be found in the topic points below.
