MapleSimTM is a modeling environment for creating and simulating complex multidomain physical systems. It allows you to build component diagrams that represent physical systems in a graphical form. Using both symbolic and numeric approaches, MapleSim automatically generates model equations from a component diagram and runs high-fidelity simulations.
Build Complex Multidomain Models
You can use MapleSim to build models that integrate components from various engineering fields into a complete system. MapleSim features a library of hundreds of modeling components, including electrical, hydraulics, mechanical, and thermal devices; sensors and sources; and signal blocks. You can also create custom components to suit your modeling and simulation needs.
Advanced Symbolic and Numeric Capabilities
MapleSim uses the advanced symbolic and numeric capabilities of MapleTM to generate the mathematical models that simulate the behavior of a physical system. You can, therefore, apply simplification techniques to equations to create concise and numerically efficient models.
Pre-built Analysis Tools and Templates
MapleSim provides various pre-built apps and templates in the form of Maple worksheets for viewing model equations and performing advanced analysis tasks, such as parameter optimization. To analyze your model and present your simulation results in an interactive format, you can use Maple features such as embedded components, plotting tools, and document creation tools. You can also translate your models into C code and work with them in other applications and tools, including applications that allow you to perform real-time simulation.
Interactive 3-D Visualization Tools
The MapleSim 3-D visualization environment allows you to build and animate 3-D graphical representations of your multibody mechanical system models. You can use this environment to validate the 3-D configuration of your model and visually analyze the behavior of your system under different conditions and at different simulation start times.
MapleSim 2020.2 requires Maple 2020.2.
MaplesoftTM also offers a suite of toolboxes, add-ons, and other applications that extend the capabilities of Maple and MapleSim for engineering design projects. For a complete list of products, visit http://www.maplesoft.com/products.
