Simulation and Validation

The subject area of simulation and validation provides an introduction to the simulation of processes and structures. Special attention is given to handling stochastic input and output data, non-linear behaviour, and the use of efficient simulation methods. The models are validated using experimental data. In addition, methods of statistical experimental planning as well as measurement methods, subsequent signal processing and methods for system and parameter identification are presented.
