The development of this library has been a collaborative effort and many have contributed.

  • The previous design of this library (until beginning of 2008) was based on the paper Elmqvist H., Tummescheit H., and Otter M.: Object-Oriented Modeling of Thermo-Fluid Systems. Modelica 2003 Conference, Linköping, Sweden, pp. 269-286, Nov. 3-4, 2003.
    This design has been partly changed, especially by the introduction of the streams concept.
  • The Fluid library development was organized in 2002-2004 by Martin Otter, since 2004 it is organized by Francesco Casella, and since 2008 it is organized jointly by Francesco Casella and Rüdiger Franke.
  • Francesco Casella included several components of his ThermoPower library with some rewriting. The stream connector concept used in Modelica.Fluid is based on a similar concept developed by him for the ThermoPower library.
  • Rüdiger Franke initiated the stream connector concept as an extension and improved version of the ThermoPower concept. In Nov. 2008 - Jan. 2009 he greatly restructured and improved the library.
  • Michael Wetter introduced trace constituents in Modelica.Fluid consistently and provided corresponding examples under Examples.TraceSubstances.
  • The following people contributed to the fluid component models, examples, and the further design of the library (alphabetical list):
    John Batteh, Francesco Casella, Jonas Eborn, Hilding Elmqvist, Rüdiger Franke, Manuel Gräber, Henning Knigge, Sven Erik Mattsson, Chuck Newman, Hans Olsson, Martin Otter, Katrin Prölß, Christoph Richter, Michael Sielemann, Mike Tiller, Hubertus Tummescheit, Allan Watson, Michael Wetter.

Partial financial support of ABB and DLR by BMBF (BMBF Förderkennzeichen: 01IS07022F) for the further development of this library within the ITEA project EUROSYSLIB is highly appreciated.
