Maplesoft (Waterloo, ON) now offers the MapleSim drag-and-drop physical modeling tool. The tool applies advanced symbolic computation techniques to produce simulation models of multi-domain systems. Users can construct plant models using acausal connections between the components to represent their physical relationships, and then combine those plant models with signal flow-based control systems. MapleSim generates the representative system equations, reduces them to optimal form, and then runs a simulation of the resulting system, complete with a 3-D visual representation.
