i have got alot of mixed and high degree derivatives. For example:

u[x]*u[x,t]*eta[x,t]+u[]^2*u[x]*eta[x]+kis(x,y)u[x,t]^2*u[]+eta(x, y)*u[]*u[x]^2+ksi[x,t]*u[x]^2*u[x,t]+......

like this alot of terms

my question is how can i solve divided by the derivative of the u(x,t) partial differential equations system and so  how can i find eta(x,t,u) and ksi(x,t,u) 

Hi MaplePrimers!

I have a simulation in MapleSIM, exported as a compiled procedure in maple using -LinkModel(), and -GetCompiledProc.

I'm trying to do parameter estimation on my MapleSIM model.  Within a optimization scheme, I call the MapleSIM model, and it will output a curve.  Using a least squares method, I compare this measurements to synthetic experimental data (I know the actual values), and generate an objective function.  The optimization algorithm will try different parameter values, and try to minimze the objective function.  When the curves are exactly the same, the objective function will be zero.

The problem I am having is certain parameter sets will cause the model to require very small steps.  I wish to put a timeout on these experiments, because speed is important.  However, I would also like to see the results up to the point of requiring very small steps.  For timeout, I was using code along the lines of:

out:= timelimit(30,cProc(params = PData)); #simulate with 30s limit

where PData are the parameter guessses, and cProc is the compiled MapleSim model.

I would like 'out' to be assigned whatever the results were after 30 seconds, even if the model had not finished integrating.


Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello, could you give me ideas with such challenge? I have created my model in MapleSim and want to check correctness of the scheme. I need to get values of block variable. by default maplesim displays results as a graph and i do not see what is real value. How I can get these values? 


I tried to install maplesim on windows 8 but it didn't work.

However, i have installed microsoft visual c++ express before and i have made the precedure as described in maple that is to say 



Does Maplesim allow hardware integration such as a joystick so that I can feed in joystick commands (via USB or serial) from the computer and then control my Maplesim model in the virtual space? Suggestions?


Thank you.


I'm currently working on a manipulator model in Maplesim and will import CAD attachments to each of the links. The Solidworks model, once imported to Maplesim, is not located in the same position as the Maplesim part but is offset by X,Y,Z. The scaling is also off. Is there some way to align the CAD to the component instead of trial and error?

Thank you.


MapleSim 6.3 includes substantial improvements to the MapleSim simulation engine, resulting in faster model pre-processing times, more flexible code generation, and expanded support for Modelica-based custom components.

For some days, i no longer manage to open MapleSIM.

In fact, after double clicking on the shortcut, the software seems to be launched.

However, i can't open MapleSim on my screen. It seems that MapleSIM is only visible on the taskbars.

Maybe I have changed an option on my windows7.

I don't know.

Has somebody got a idea to help me ? so as to open my application normally ?

I attached a copy of my screen where you can see MapleSIM only in the taskbars.


Thank you for your help.




I am trying to solve rigid nody dynamics on Maplesim!! Trying to simulate Gyroscopic Effect.. I want to plot Angular Momentum of that rigid body!!


How do I do this??




I look for a way to color the different subsystems of my system in the 2D mode.

It should be to have a clearer presentation of my system.

Is somebody known as it is possible to color a subsystem ?

Thank you for help.


I study the model of crankshaft in MapleSim.

For the moment, i manage to plot different parameters function of the time. For exemple, the angle of the crank function of the time or the displacement of the slider function of the time.

But, i like to plot the displacement of the slider funtion of the angle of the crank.

Is it possible and how can i do this?

Thank you for your help.


I want to optimal control, i.e. determine command which minimize an onjective function.

So I want know how I can use the Maple function "optimization[NLPSolve]" in a custom block of Maplesim ?

(I do that in Matlab with "fminsearch" and a Matlab function block but I don't manage to do it with maplesim)


It's a very easy question but i don't find for the moment.

I want to measure an angle in a revolute joint. For that purpose, i use a probe to measure the angle. The angle is measured in rad. How can i do to change in deg ?

Thank you for your help.

Hello everyone!  

I am very new to the maplesoft community but am very impressed with everything I have learned in the last few days.  I'm having an issue using force probes on a double wishbone suspension that I'm hoping someone can help me with.  I am trying to measure the forces in each link to gather quantitative solutions for the forces at the chassis connection points.  However, I keep getting one of the links measuring no value at all.  The...
