Modern engineering uses computer models. A model is a simplified representation of a real object or system that captures some limited aspect of it. For example, a CAD model captures its geometry, a simulation model its behavior, and so on. The most effective models combine a graphical representation, which humans can see and understand, with

as turbines are common components in systems for flight and power generation. A whitepaper developed by Dr. Dirk Zwemer (Intercax) and Nidal Kochrad (Université de Sherbrooke) titled “Case Study: A SysML Gas Turbine Parametric Model” illustrates how to model and analyze a gas turbine using SysML. The whitepaper shows the use of SysML parametrics to model

In March 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the southeast coast of Japan. The nuclear reactors at Fukushima survived the earthquake; they were designed to. But the earthquake triggered a tsunami, which flooded the back-up generators in the reactor complex basement. Without power, the cooling pumps couldn’t function. Without cooling water, the reactor rods
