Hi simulators

Is there an easy way to give a global time frame/limits for all plots: typically I need to simulate a few seconds to get rid of all my transients, and then I would like to zoom in on the effect of interest. Now I have only found out how to reset one by one each graph via the axis properties, I have a dozen graphs per simulation 4 variables to scan over ten points each, that makes a damn lot of graphs properties click to reset, results: I need 60 sec to...


I wanted to vary my mass item in MapleSim5, to have it appear and dissapear. I noted I could us the variable "1*t" [kg] in a rigid body mass item, that worked out fine

Then I wanted to have a force variable depending on the time, but now I get a message Main.t is not defined in Main

So finally how to refer correctly to the "time" ?


Subdiary question: how to use signal blocks to generate a named variable that I use elswhere in my model for a Parameter input


I have the same problem.

   "Simulation problem: maximum number of event iterations reached (100) at t= ...."

I have a model which worked without problem in maplesim2, using a lot of event iterations. The model can only work this way, becouse its a mechanic model where the friction is function of the sliding speed, thus where the speed changes value, the friction coefficient does also, and an event occurs.

I really need to know where...

What is meant by events? I have seen this error numerous times.

   "Simulation problem: maximum number of event iterations reached (100) at t= ...."

How do I model so that I can avoid them?

We have just released the MapleSim Driveline Component Library. Built with the involvement of several transmission manufacturers, this MapleSim add-on covers all stages in the powertrain, from the engine to the differential, wheels, and road loads, as well as vehicle dynamics. MapleSim and the MapleSim Driveline Component Library make it much easier for transmission manufacturers to reduce power loss through improved designs, resulting in more efficient vehicles.




I'm trying to increase the number of parameters in the maplesim optimization template (nowadays we have six parameters)


I have a problem where I need to tune a model and I have more parameters -

How can I increase the number above six?


I am a student and totally new to MapleSim. Unfortunately I have some difficulties to solve the tasks my boss is giving me. Maybe you can give me a hint. I am working with MapleSim 4 and Maple 14.

My task is to create a system of four masses, that are connected by springs and dampers that have translational and rotational properties. So far, I build the system and I was able to connect the masses with translational springs. Here my question: How can you...


How can we use  the variation of constants formula to solve the IVP


    I'm trying to get a component to perform a Fractional Derivative in MapleSim to use in a multibody simulation (as a spring-dash pot component). However, I'm stumped by trying to get the fracdiff function past the custom component code.

  • When set to series, the fractional derivative is only accurate near the estimated about point
  • When set to LaPlace, it's impossible to perform the transform...

I'm developing an application that I'd like to use elements of an array as parameters in MapleSim components - is there a way to use Maple arrays/vectors in MapleSim?


Also is there a way to open a file and read its contents (data) as the starting point (parameter set) for a MapleSim simulation?

I have a problem.

I don´t know how can i do for working with a dynamic model equation was done in maple in Maplesim?

Help me please

MapleSim has been delivering unique advantages in physical modeling and system simulation for many years. Today we release the latest iteration: MapleSim 5. Looking back at some of the earlier versions of our software, it is hard to believe that this is the same product; from the user interface to the component libraries to the simulation engine, every part of the system has experienced a striking evolution.

Like its predecessors, MapleSim 5 is based on the Maple mathematical...

How does one go about defining a road surface that can be used with the tire library for doing road holding on hills and side slopes?

I recently stumbled upon a hypnotic video of 15 out-of-phase pendulums from a physics experiment at Harvard University.



I am trying to solve a transient heat transfer problem.

The problem is that I have an insulated pipe that is immersed in cold water.  At time 0, the fluid filling the pipe is at a constant temperature.  The insulation at one end of the pipe is different to the rest of the insulation.  I need to find out the time that it would take any fluid to reach a certain temperature, called the cool down time.

A graphic representation of the...
