Casper Thule Mathiasen

During his studies, Casper Thule researched development of tools for collaborative simulation (co-simulation) of Cyber-physical systems. Cyber-physical systems, e.g. trains and airplanes, consist of software components (Cyber) and physical entities, typically of mechanical or electrical nature. Before such components and entities are realized, it is possible to create representative simulation units that jointly represent a given system. Historically, these simulation units were simulated in isolation, but co-simulation technology makes it possible to couple them and thereby enable full system simulation.

Casper Thule contributed to the field of co-simulation in different ways with the main contributions being a survey of co-simulation and tools for co-simulation. The tools contribute to the development, modification and coupling of simulation units and they have been used for both academic and industrial case studies. The goal was to advance the state of co-simulation technology used in the development of Cyber-physical Systems.

The PhD degree was completed at the Department of Engineering, Science and Technology, Aarhus University.
