Maple 12 delivers major innovations in engineering analysis and design

Maple 12 introduces an extensive range of new tools built on Maple’s fundamental technology platform of smart documents, powerful mathematics, and seamless connectivity to the engineering design toolchain. Whether you need to do quick calculations, develop design sheets, or produce sophisticated high-fidelity simulation models, Maple 12 provides the necessary technology to reduce errors and dramatically increase your analytical productivity.

What’s New in Maple 12:

  • A new Dynamic Systems package offers a large selection of analytic and graphing tools for linear time-variant systems, which are essential in control systems development.
  • New interactive embedded components include dials, gauges and radio buttons.
  • The Exploration Assistant lets you create interactive mini-applications to explore the parameters of expressions.
  • New plot types include dual axis plots, polar axis plots, and specialized engineering plots.
  • Improvements to solvers for ODEs, PDEs and DAEs continue to strengthen Maple’s world-leading position in numeric and symbolic differential equation solving.
  • The Discrete Transforms collection has been expanded to include numerical wavelet transforms.
  • CAD connectivity adds important analysis capabilities to CAD systems.
  • MATLAB to Maple code translation allows you to leverage your existing work.

Application Briefs

Maple Optimizes Controller Design to Guide the Motion of a Maglev Train
An Electromagnetic Suspension (EMS) Magnetically Levitated (Maglev) train uses the attractive forces of magnets, positioned below a ferrous metal guideway, to levitate a train and guide its motion.

Application Center Highlights

Optimizing the Controller Design to Guide the Motion of a Maglev Train
Author: Maple  
Magnetically Levitated (Maglev) trains differ from conventional trains in that they are levitated, guided and propelled along a guideway by a changing magnetic field rather than by steam, diesel or electric engine. The absence of direct contact between the train and the rail allows the Maglev to reach record ground transportation speeds, which are on par to that of commercial airplanes.

Maplesoft Webinar Series

Introduction to Maple 12 for Professionals

Tuesday, May 13, 2008 2:00 pm EDT.  Register here.
Monday, May 26, 2008 2:00 pm EDT.  Register here.

Maple 12 is the essential technical computing software for today’s engineers and scientists. Whether you need to do quick calculations, develop design sheets, or produce sophisticated high-fidelity simulation models, Maple 12 provides the necessary technology to reduce errors and dramatically increase your analytical productivity.
           
In this one-hour demonstration and Q&A forum, you will learn how Maple 12 combines the world’s most powerful mathematical computation engine with an intuitive user interface, a smart document environment that automatically captures all of your technical knowledge in an electronic form, and the ability to integrate with the rest of your toolchain.

Maple Connectivity Tools for Simulink®/MATLAB®

Thursday, May 29, 2008 2:00 pm EDT.  Register here.

This Webinar will introduce you to the power of the Maple product line for rapidly developing solutions and deriving highly efficient engineering system models for easy implementation in your simulation tool-chain.  Within an hour, you will learn how to reduce project time “from weeks to days” by making advanced engineering math work for you, generate optimal design parameters using automated optimization tools, and import Simulink models into Maple for analysis and simplification.
