News & Announcements

Maplesoft recently announced the release of MapleSim, the pilot version of a revolutionary tool that is expected to set new standards in the modeling and simulation industry. MapleSim™ is a high-performance multi-domain modeling and simulation tool, which will dramatically reduce the time taken to bring products to market by using physical modeling techniques.
MapleSim offers a number of advantages over traditional systems: it has the ability to mix physical components and traditional blocks; model diagrams map directly to the physical system; it offers natural multi-domain modeling; advanced units management; live design documentation; automatic generation of system equations; and model simplification using symbolic techniques.

MapleSim uses cutting edge physical modeling techniques that can save hours, even days on complex applications. Click here for more information about physical modeling.

Find out how MapleSim can help you in your physical modeling work. Join the MapleSim pilot program and get early access to MapleSim while providing your ideas and your experience to influence the next generation in modeling and simulation tools! To join the pilot program, click here.

Application Briefs

Smaller Radiator Design with Optimized Heat Transfer Performance
From the laws of thermodynamics, we know that heat transfer increases as we increase the surface area between the coolant and the radiator assembly. That said, the demand for more powerful engines in smaller hood spaces has created a problem of insufficient rates of heat dissipation in automotive radiators. As a result, many radiators must be redesigned to be more compact while still having sufficient cooling power capabilities. This application proposes a new design for a smaller radiator assembly, which is capable of dissipating the same heat as the original design, given a set of operating conditions.
