Latest MapleSim release opens new avenues for model development

With over 150 new components, Maplesoft™ (Waterloo, Canada) has released the latest version of MapleSim™, the high-performance physical modelling and simulation software. Available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts), MapleSim 5, has a broader application scope, streamlined modelling environment and ability to efficiently simulate even more systems, making it easier to tackle large projects and get results quickly

Included among MapleSim 5’s 150 new components are new libraries for magnetics and thermal fluids, which means the power of MapleSim can be applied to even more modelling projects. With these components customers can use MapleSim 5 to quickly develop a wider range of applications, such as the solenoids in dialysis machines and fuel injection systems, saturating motors and transformers and heat exchangers for machine cooling systems.

The MapleSim 5 interface includes many new and improved features to reduce model development time and help customers manage the complexity of their models. For example, enhanced diagnostic tools provide early feedback related to the definition of the model itself, such as identifying inconsistent initial conditions. MapleSim then provides assistance in resolving the problem so corrections can be made before running the simulation. Other additions include increased control over parameters and initial conditions, easy export of 3-D animation simulation results and streamlined design environments for building both model diagrams and 3-D model representations. The improved simulation engine in MapleSim can now generate highly optimised C-code for all MapleSim models. This royalty-free code can be incorporated into other software in the toolchain.

MapleSim uses a fully developed symbolic modelling engine to handle all of the complex mathematics involved in the development of engineering models. This symbolic engine offers unique advantages that expand the modelling and simulation capabilities of engineers. Each MapleSim release further develops these capabilities, which include automatically-generated model equations in full parametric form, equation-based custom components, optimised code generation for real-time systems, revolutionary multi-body technology and an interactive analysis environment that captures the full engineering knowledge that goes into each project.

“By leveraging symbolic computation technology, MapleSim offers unique advantages that enable our customers to succeed at very difficult design projects they simply can’t do with other tools,” says Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist, Maplesoft. “MapleSim reduces model development time from months to days while producing high-fidelity, high-performance models. With MapleSim 5 our customers can apply those time and cost savings to even more projects, while further reducing the time needed to design their complex models.”

What do our Customers say about us?

I have tested the program with my instrument. It is now working very well, and I am really very happy with it. Many thanks for all your help indeed. I am deeply impressed by your enthusiastic contributions to it.

JX, Oxford, UK

I have always received excellent support with Bibliographic software from your team. Thanks a lot.

AM, London, UK

“While skeptical at first, now having switched to Origin I know it will remain my graphing software of choice. Not only does it have an intuitive user interface, but it also has the power to quickly and efficiently complete all of my graphing needs. Origin is the best graphing software available. Period.”

Mr. Kevin Clark, University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign

Thank you for all your efforts. A perfect example of what support should be. Again thank you.
