Model development software

  • 09-Aug-2011 09:29 EDT


Maplesoft releases MapleSim 5, the latest version of its physical modeling and simulation software. Featuring a broader application scope, streamlined modeling environment, and the ability to simulate additional systems, MapleSim 5 simplifies complex projects and improves results. Component libraries for fluids, thermofluids, and magnetics allow users to develop various applications including the solenoids in machines, thermal and fluid flow dynamics of heat exchangers, and the air path in combustion engine models. Enhanced diagnostic tools provide early feedback related to model definition; the software then assists in resolving the problem before running the simulation. Other features include increased control over parameters and conditions, export of 3-D animation simulation results, and streamlined design environments for building both model diagrams and 3-D model representations.
