1.1 Physical Modeling in MapleSim

Physical modeling, or physics-based modeling, incorporates mathematics and physical laws to describe the behavior of an engineering component or a system of interconnected components. Since most engineering systems have associated dynamics, the behavior is typically defined with ordinary differential equations (ODEs).


To help you develop models quickly and easily, MapleSim provides the following features:
