Standardized format for model data

A standardized format is necessary to ease the exchange of simulation in- and output between partners modelling different phenomena of the same processing line. The definition of the format has proved difficult due to the scope of data that the finished file format must contain. The agreed format requires a conversion tool, allowing the necessary data to be extracted and read into the existing simulation software. This tool is easily programmed in standard languages by the users (e.g.: Fortran, C++). The quick and easy exchange of simulation data allows new cooperations between researchers possible in scale of VIR[*] and future research and development collaborations involving modelling.
