This paper describes the design concepts and object-oriented architecture of Onyx, an extensible domain framework for computational simulation of gas turbine engines. Onyx provides a flexible environment for defining, modifying, and simulating the component-based gas turbine models described in Part 1 of this paper. Using advanced object-oriented technologies such as design patterns and frameworks, Onyx enables users to customize and extend the framework to add new functionality or adapt simulation behavior as required. A customizable visual interface provides high-level symbolic control of propulsion system construction and execution. For computationally-intensive analysis, components may be distributed across heterogeneous computing architectures and operating systems. A distributed gas turbine engine model is developed and simulated to illustrate the use of the framework. [S0742-4795(00)02403-0]
