Maple 15 Now Available!

June 21, 2011 at 10:00 AM EDT

A new generation of engineering modeling and simulation technology is emerging to speed up the development of sophisticated models for complex machines. Tools such as MapleSim from Maplesoft deploy advanced symbolic computation technology to simplify the complexity arising from non-linear, multi-domain, and digital control applications (including HIL simulation). This webinar presents the latest computational techniques for accelerating model development while increasing model fidelity and simulation performance. Based on the MapleSim platform, you will learn about fundamental techniques and advantages of this approach as compared to conventional software tools. Models developed with these techniques offer greater fidelity, with less development effort, and substantially faster real-time execution speed. Additionally, advanced analytical techniques such as inverse kinematics, and parametric optimization are more readily supported through this framework.

The speakers are two of the most accomplished experts in this new generation of modeling technique. They will present real-world case studies drawn from a variety of industries including auto, aerospace, and advanced manufacturing.

Webinar: What's the key to Effective Model-Based Design?

Driven by the needs of the consumer auto industry, “symbolic computation” based physical model development has broken through some key barriers in HIL testing. For example, full vehicle models for dynamics, multi-domain models of HEV powertrains, and detailed dynamic models of special subsystems, such as crane arms, are challenging the traditional engineering workflow. Featuring numerous case studies and technique demonstrations, this webcast will explore new modeling techniques to accelerate model development while increasing model fidelity and simulation performance. It will show how to achieve efficient high-fidelity system modeling for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and control applications whether you’re working on passenger cars or commercial vehicles. In addition, this webcast will provide you with practical knowledge on quickly improving or implementing model-based design (MBD) techniques.

The Three Reservoir Problem
Author: Maplesoft

Three reservoirs at different elevations are connected through a piping network at a single point, with an outflow from the common junction. This application will calculate the flowrates, flow directions and head at the common junction. This is a classic problem in hydraulic engineering. Through an understanding of the concepts associated therein, many hydraulic challenges can be solved.

Countercurrent Double Pipe Heat Exchanger
Author: Maplesoft

This application models the temperature dynamics of a countercurrent double pipe heat exchanger. Three partial differential equations are derived from heat balances across the tube- and shell-side liquids, and the tube wall (accounting for heat flow from the shell- and tube-side liquids, and conduction along the length of the tube). The equations are solved numerically, and the temperature profiles are plotted. The heat exchanger is assumed to be perfectly insulated. Densities, specific heat capacities, heat transfer coefficients, and thermal conductivities are assumed to be constant.

Tracking Data in Maple
Author: John May

This application is partially inspired by the BMI tracker in Nintendo's WiiFit application. It could be easily used to track a weight loss goal, but could also be used to track other quantifiable goals. It also takes advantage of two new features in Maple 15, specifically the Finance package, and the DataTable document component.

Simulation drives golf club innovation
Motion System Design, May 4, 2011

"When club manufacturer Cleveland Golf wanted to increase the performance of its drivers, the company turned to MapleSim, a physical modeling and simulation tool from Maplesoft, Waterloo, Ontario, for assistance. In particular, Cleveland Golf's engineering team wanted to investigate the effects of different shaft designs on driver performance… By using validated dynamic models of a golf driver, Cleveland Golf now quickly explores different designs and “what if” scenarios to boost club performance, and minimize the need for expensive prototypes and costs associated with performing physical tests."
