Maplesoft has added the MapleSim Hydraulics Library from Modelon to the MapleSim product family.
The new component library is the result of a technology partnership with Modelon, the renowned developer of high-quality Modelica libraries. With the MapleSim Hydraulics Library from Modelon, engineers can seamlessly incorporate industry-tested hydraulics components while continuing to take full advantage of all the modelling, analysis and simulation abilities of MapleSim.
Offering a modern approach to physical modelling and simulation, MapleSim dramatically reduces model development and analysis time while producing fast, high-fidelity simulations. MapleSim enables modelling at the system level, allowing engineers to combine hydraulic subsystems with other domains and analyse their interactions.
Comprising of over 150 components for modelling pumps, motors, cylinders, restrictions, valves, hydraulic lines, lumped volumes, and sensors, the MapleSim Hydraulics Library from Modelon enables engineers to produce very high-fidelity models by accounting for compressible oil and cavitation effects, resulting in an extremely accurate view of system dynamics.
According to Dr Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft, hydraulics systems are notoriously difficult to model with high accuracy, but so important to understanding system-level behaviour. Customers can now take instant advantage of all the great expertise and experience that has gone into the Modelon Hydraulics Library, from inside the MapleSim environment, enabling them to meet and exceed their system-level requirements.
Dr Hubertus Tummescheit, Chief Executive Officer of Modelon adds that the release of the MapleSim Hydraulics Library from Modelon demonstrates the power of the Modelica standard platform for the systems engineering community.
