Multidomain Modeling with Built-in Components
MapleSim includes over 550 built-in components from many different domains. System-level models can be created by seamlessly combining components from different domains into a single model. MapleSim knows how components can be connected and prevents illogical connections.
The physical component blocks include functionality for many domains:
- Electrical, including resistors, op amps, diodes, stepper motors, and machines
- Thermal, including heat capacitors, conductors, convection, and radiation blocks
- Rotational and translational mechanics, including spring-mass dampers, gears, clutches, and bearings
- Multibody dynamics, including flexible beams, rigid bodies, and constraints
- Magnetics, including data for magnetic materials, electromagnetic fields, permanent magnets, field shapes, sensors, leakage, and flux and potential sources
- Thermal fluids, including boundary conditions, constraints, heat flow, heat transfer, and thermal sensors
- Hydraulics, including hydraulic cylinders and motors, orifices, and non-circular pipes
The signal-based component blocks include:
- Continuous and discrete blocks, such as filters, delays, and triggered samplers
- Logic and structural blocks, such as Boolean operators, switches, and mux/demux
- Arithmetic blocks, such as integrators, gains, vectors, and feedback
The block library can be extended by creating and sharing custom components, through specialized add-on products, and by importing third-party Modelica libraries.
