Annex 2: Closed-Loop Simulation Support in the US Module

Besides the usual GUI execution mode and server execution mode, newFASANT includes a third model of execution closed-loop execution. This mode allows the user to use the capabilities in the program without the need of using the graphical user interface (except for creating the geometries, as explained in the following sections). This mode of execution is intended as a way of using the simulation capabilities of newFASANT in headless machines (without graphical environments) or as an aid to external simulation workflows such as closed-loop simulations, where it is needed to automate the generation of simulation cases.

The following sections explain the usage of the "closed-loop simulations" feature.
