The FVA-Simulation Hub is a separate application from the FVA-Workbench that can be run on a server. Any number of clients can send calculation tasks (jobs) to the Simulation Hub using so-called requests. The Simulation Hub receives the jobs and distributes them across multiple instances of the FVA-Workbench. The calculation results are then returned to the client as a response. Communication with the Simulation Hub is done using a REST-API; with this interface, users can write their own client applications to communicate with the Simulation Hub.

Example applications:

  • Web application in which users can specify various gearbox parameters, start a calculation, and then view the results.
  • Application to perform mass calculations for optimization of drive solutions.
  • Application for recalculation of modular gear units with different combinations of components or variations.
