Ideally, one would compute as many values as possible across the entire model from minimal provided data, without repeating any data values (so that the model data is completely DRY).
However, because this is primarily a SysML Parsing Analysis tutorial, rather than simply removing the multiple existing redefinitions of the
charge:Charge value property, and instead relying throughout on a derived, computed version of
/charge:Charge via block
Particle, a separate calculation target
/calcCharge:Charge is used. This way the snippet references to the redefined value property versions can be preserved, and we can compare the values in the stated versions with the calculated versions.
The following can also be computed:
/calcRestEnergy:RestEnergy can be calculated from the stated
The entire sequence is reproduced:
At the top is a BDD with some physical constants collected in a block
Constants (with values elicited from some Wikipedia snippets).
The BDD for block
Particle shows how it carries constraint properties for ConstraintBlocks with equations for the conversions and Boolean tests. The constraint parameters are then bound to values in the SysML Parametrics diagram using BindingConnectors.
The computation can be run from instances using Magic Cyber-Systems Engineer ® (Cameo Systems Modeler®) or Magic Model Analyst® (Cameo Simulation Toolkit®) :
At the bottom a BDD shows the populated instances
e+:Positron. The correspondence between the values in the calculated versions and the stated versions of the charge-related value properties is exact; the correspondence for the rest energy calculation is quite good.
