Modeling and Simulation Software for Mechanical Systems

altMathWorks (Natick, MA) announced a new version of SimDriveline that simplifies the integration of other physical domains into drivetrain models, including thermal losses in geartrains, electrical solenoids, and hydraulically actuated clutches. SimDriveline, based on MathWorks Simscape technology, helps engineers model and simulate mechanical systems in Simulink for a variety of automotive, aerospace, defense, and industrial applications.

With SimDriveline software, teams can model simple and complex systems in one environment more easily than with signal-based or input/output-based methods. Enhancements to SimDriveline include gear loss models that capture meshing and viscous losses for efficiency studies, and more accurate and efficient simulation for systems involving multiple, simultaneous clutch events.

SimDriveline is based on Simscape technology, so that teams can connect directly to other physical modeling libraries and leverage other simulation capabilities, such as data logging and Simscape local solvers. Using these libraries and capabilities helps engineers spend more time refining their designs and less time setting up models and tests.
