With recent development of computer hardware and 3D graphic technique, a lot of people have concern for something to express as the 3D graphic that look the real environment. Because the request of users have increased, the 3D simulation is developed and popularized in the many field. In this paper, we design and implement the simulation system that humans evacuate a building fires using the 3D graphic techniques. In this paper, we use the A* algorithm to humans have the artificial intelligence at evacuating a building fires, calculate the evacuation speed of each human considering temperature damage and smoke damage. In this paper, we applied the real building to demonstrate the effect of proposed evacuation simulation. Experimental results showed that the evacuation speed is affected by the temperature condition and the smoke density.

Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 9~16
This study presents a system for validating the PLC code in the virtual environments of automobile trim line. There have been considerable efforts to develop standard PLC editors for saving human power and PLC test time. However, it was difficult to apply the PLC editor on a real shop floor environment. A virtual equipment was developed to communicate with the PLC module of a shop floor and to make up the connectivity environment by a special protocol. We can validate the code without launching real equipments because the PLC module and the virtual equipment is able to be controlled in real time by the OPC protocol. An experimental model is applied to the final assembly line of an automotive industry and validated by using DELMIA Automation. In conclusion, the system is valuable in the process of PLC codes validation and virtual equipments operation. This system would reduce the development time of the PLC codes and improve the productivity and the integrity of the PLC codes.

Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 17~28
Since a homing torpedo system consists of various subsystems, organic interactions of which dictate the performance of the torpedo system, it is necessary to estimate the effects of individual subsystems in order to obtain an optimized design of the overall system. This paper attempts to gain some insight into the detection mechanism of a torpedo run, and analyze the relative importance of various parameters of a torpedo system. A database for the analysis was generated using a simulation model based on the combined discrete event and discrete time architecture. Multiple search schemes, including the snake-search method, were applied to the torpedo model, and some parameters of the torpedo were found to be stochastic. We then analyzed the effectiveness of torpedo’s detection capability according to the torpedo speed, the target speed, and the maximum detection range.

Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 29~41
Due to the recent technological advance, new types of AS/RS which can handle containers are being developed, and it is expected that they will be applied to related industries before long. Some companies and institutes in our country have constructed pilot systems for high-density-high-stacking systems and tested them to develop AS/RS-typed warehouses for containers. Along with this kind of construction efforts, development of rules to operate such systems efficiently and safely is also important. When outward-bound shipment is scheduled in container port, re-marshalling which rearranges containers in the yard to make shipment easy is conducted. In this paper, operating rules for the re-marshalling as well as simulation experiments to evaluate the performance of the rules are presented. We suggested two kinds of alternative sets of operating rules for re-marshalling and described the relevant logics corresponding to all possible cases for each alternative of operating rules. Through various simulation experiments, we found that each alternative has the merits and demerits at the same time and we could not say the one is always superior to the other. As a useful strategy, changing the applying operating rule is recommended from moment to moment depending on the expected number of operations at the landside input/output position.

Kim, Tae-Sup ; Chang, Hee-Jung ; Lee, Jae-Min ; Lee, Kang-Sun ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 51~62
Modeling and Simulation techniques are useful to construct executable battlefields and forces on computers, and have been utilized to analyze effectiveness of weapon systems in the computerized war environment. However, most weapon simulations so far have exhibited low reusability and extensibility, since they have been developed for specific simulation objectives with different structures and simulation engines. In this paper, we identify requirements for defense modeling and simulation activities and propose a simulation engine to support the identified requirements. We define the software architecture of the proposed engine, in a way to efficiently provide usability, component-based reusability, interoperability, and reuse-based development.

Kang, Shin-Sung ; Lee, Jae-Yeong ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 63~72
In the future warfare, the importance of the counter-fire operation is increasing. The counter-fire operation is divided into offensive counter-fire operation and defensive counter-fire operation. Reviewing the researches done so far, the detection asset of offensive counter-fire operation called UAV(Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) and its operational effectiveness analysis is continually progressing. However, the analysis of the detection asset of defensive counterfire called Target Acquisition Radar(TAR) and its quantitative operational effectiveness are not studied yet. Therefore, in this paper, we studied operational effectiveness of TAR using C2 Theory & MANA Simulation model, and showed clear quantitative analysis results by comparing both cases of using TAR and not using TAR.

Lee, Sang-Jin ; Kim, Jong-Hyun ; Cho, Tae-Ho ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 73~80
A wireless sensor network which is deployed in hostile environment can be easily compromised by attackers. The selective forwarding attack can jam the packet or drop a sensitive packet such as the movement of the enemy on data flow path through the compromised node. Xiao, Yu and Gao proposed the checkpoint-based multi-hop acknowledgement scheme(CHEMAS). In CHEMAS, each path node enable to be the checkpoint node according to the pre-defined probability and then can detect the area where the selective forwarding attacks is generated through the checkpoint nodes. In this scheme, the number of hops is very important because this parameter may trade off between energy conservation and detection capacity. In this paper, we used the fuzzy rule system to determine adaptive threshold value which is the number of hops for the ACK packets. In every period, the base station determines threshold value while using fuzzy logic. The energy level, the number of compromised node, and the distance to each node from base station are used to determine threshold value in fuzzy logic.

Ma, Yong-Beom ; Kim, Tae-Young ; Lee, Jong-Sik ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 81~89
Biological data mining has been noticed as an issue as the volume of biological data is increasing extremely. Grid technology can share and utilize computing data and resources. In this paper, we propose a hybrid system that combines biological data mining with grid technology. Especially, we propose a decision range adjustment algorithm for processing efficiency of biological data mining. We obtain a reliable data mining recognition rate automatically and rapidly through this algorithm. And communication loads and resource allocation are key issues in grid environment because the resources are geographically distributed and interacted with themselves. Therefore, we propose a dynamic load balancing algorithm and apply it to the grid-based biological data mining method. For performance evaluation, we measure average processing time, average communication time, and average resource utilization. Experimental results show that this method provides many advantages in aspects of processing time and cost.
Implementation of Tactical Path-finding Integrated with Weight Learning
Yu, Kyeon-Ah ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 91~98
Conventional path-finding has focused on finding short collision-free paths. However, as computer games become more sophisticated, it is required to take tactical information like ambush points or lines of enemy sight into account. One way to make this information have an effect on path-finding is to represent a heuristic function of a search algorithm as a weighted sum of tactics. In this paper we consider the problem of learning heuristic to optimize path-finding based on given tactical information. What is meant by learning is to produce a good weight vector for a heuristic function. Training examples for learning are given by a game level-designer and will be compared with search results in every search level to update weights. This paper proposes a learning algorithm integrated with search for tactical path-finding. The perceptron-like method for updating weights is described and a simulation tool for implementing these is presented. A level-designer can mark desired paths according to characters' properties in the heuristic learning tool and then it uses them as training examples to learn weights and shows traces of paths changing along with weight learning.

Shin, Seoung-Chul ; Park, Young-Man ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 99~106
In the anti-submarine warfare, a search using HMS is used as a basic strategy. The importance of HMS operation strategy is increasing, but it is hard to develop effective anti-submarine search strategy due to reciprocal actions among sea environments, search patterns, sonar operational tactics, anti-submarine search strategy, etc. In this research, a simulator was invented so as to analyze anti-submarine search patterns used when an HMS-carrying ship searches for submarine in various anti-submarine search environments. The simulator reflects various factors that influence anti-submarine search, and with consideration of search patterns of anti-submarine ships as well as evasive movement of submarines, it can simulate various anti-submarine search operations such as a collaborative anti-submarine operation by a single or multiple forces. Also, the simulator will contribute to developing and improving systematic and efficient HMS operational tactics in anti-submarine warfare.

Automotive manufacturing is a complex task that requires the production and assembly of thousands of different components or parts. The engine and the transmission are the major components that constitute a power train system. Although manufacturing processes of an engine are similar, the layouts of the manufacturing lines are different from factory to factory. It is due to the different design concept that how to combine the serial and parallel structures. In this paper, three engine lines of different factories are introduced, and the simulation technology is used to make the performance analysis for different design concepts.
A Geographic Routing Algorithm to Prolong the Lifetime of MANET
Lee, Ju-Young ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 119~125
In ad-hoc networks, dynamically reconfigurable and temporary wireless networks, all mobile devices cooperatively maintain network connectivity with no assistance of base stations while they have limited amounts of energy that is used in different rates depending on the power level. Since every node has to perform the functions of a router, if some nodes die early due to lack of energy, it will not be possible for other nodes to communicate with each other and network lifetime will be shortened. Consequently, it is very important to develop a technique to efficiently consume the limited amounts of energy resources so that the network lifetime is maximized. In this paper, geographical localized routing is proposed to help making smarter routing decision using only local information and reduce the routing overhead. The proposed localized routing algorithm selects energy-aware neighbors considering the transmission energy and error rate over the wireless link, and the residual energy of the node, which enables nodes to achieve balanced energy-consumption and the network lifetime to prolong.

Shin, Sang-Mi ; Kim, Youn-Jin ; Lee, Hong-Chul ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 127~135
The validation of a simulation model is a key to demonstrate that the simulation model is reliable. However, among various validation methods have been introduced, it is very poor to research the specific techniques for the time series data. Therefore, this paper suggests the methodology to verify the simulation using the time series data by Wavelet Transform, Power Spectrum and Coherence. This method performs 2 steps as followed. Firstly, we get spectrum using the Wavelet transform available for non-periodic signal separation. Secondly, we compare 2 patterns of output data from simulation model and actual system by Coherence Analysis. As a result of comparing it with other validation techniques, the suggested way can judge simulation model accuracy more clearly. By this way, we can make it possible to perform the simulation validation test under various situations using detailed sectional validation method, which has been impossible using a single statistics for the whole model.

Park, Hyun-Moon ; Park, Woo-Chool ; Park, Soo-Huyn ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 137~145
This study presents an RTS(Real-time Traffic System) based on an LBS(Location Based Service) using 5.8~5.9GHz RSU(Road Side Unit). The proposed LBI(Location based Broadcast system on ITS) is a local information-based service supported by RSU for drivers, which has a feature of convergence between T-DMB system and ITS-based RTS. The convergence of local broadcasting station and ITS is realized by two-way communication and supports LBS(Location Based Service) by identifying of vehicle's location using RSU. Real-time information delivery and various services could be provided by information exchanges between LMM and local broadcasting stations. Furthermore, conventional technical limitations have been solved mutually such as transmission area limitation in RTS and one-way communication problem in T-DMB. This support real-time two-way communication to each driver. Therefore, it can be expected that traffic dispersion effects and services expansion for drivers by RTS and LBI. Finally, it is proposed to built and implement test-bed around institute.

SDL-OPNET Co-Simulation Technique for the Development of Communication Protocols with an Integrated Approach to Functional Verification and Performance Evaluation
Yang, Qi-Ping ; Kim, Tae-Hyong ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 19, issue 2, 2010, Pages 157~164
While both functional verification and performance evaluation of a system are necessary for the development of effective and reliable communication systems, they have been usually performed individually through functional modeling with formal language tools and performance modeling with professional network performance evaluation tools, respectively. However, separate and duplicated modeling of a system may cause increase of the cost and inconsistency between the models. In order to overcome this problem, this paper proposes an integrated design technique that estimates the performance of a communication protocol designed in SDL with SDL-OPNET co-simulation. The proposed technique presents how to design a co-simulation system with the environment functions of Tau and the external system module of OPNET. InRes protocol was used as an example to show the applicability and usefulness of the proposed technique.
