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
- 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
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.
