For the past thirty years, I have used several mathematical packages for problem solving and graphing. It all started with spreadsheet software that really helped speedup calculations compared to calculators. As many people do, once I had one tool I then started looking for another that would offer even more capabilities and features. I tested several of the very early math software but none really did all that I wanted until I came across Maple while I was working at SPAR Aerospace in Canada. For me, the rest is history. As long as I had a copy of Maple, it was all that I needed.

On occasions when I did not have a copy of this amazing software, I resorted to spreadsheets once more to complete fairly large and complex projects involving large databases and large numbers of calculations, especially when performing What-If scenarios. One distinct disadvantage of using a spreadsheet was the cryptic form of equation writing. I had to divide one long equation into several sections in different cells and then add them all up, which clearly is not good for documentation of the calculations. It is also very confusing for other engineers to know what that equation is or what it does. The development of the full engineering spreadsheet took months to complete, debug and verify. During this process, when I had errors, it was often very difficult to track exactly where the problem was, making the debugging process time consuming and sometimes very frustrating.

Having worked with Maple before, I remembered how easy it was to enter equations in a very familiar, readable math format. The real power of this software is that it allows you to write the equation(s) anyway you like and solve for any given parameter, unlike spreadsheets where you have to solve the problem first, by hand, for the parameter you want and then get the spreadsheet to calculate the value. I remember one time a few years ago when I wrote nine or ten simultaneous differential equations all in symbolic form and asked Maple to calculate certain parameters in a fully symbolic form. To my utmost disbelief, the answer came back within few minutes. With results in hand, I was able to quickly finish my research, and the results were published at PCIM Europe 2005 in “Distributed Gate ESR and its Effect on Shoot Through Performance at the Die Level”. I would never have gotten the results I needed if I was using a spreadsheet.

Even with much simpler systems of equations, finding solutions with a paper and pencil was never an easy task for me. It took a very long time, and even then there was no guarantee that I did not make copying errors, accidentally leave out a term, or make a calculation error. After I found the correct solution, I then had the problem of plotting the results, which I often needed in 3-D. Plotting allowed much deeper insights into the interdependency of all the parameters and made it easy for me to concentrate on the important ones without wasting any time. I was very happy when I could pass all these tasks onto Maple, which could do them much faster and more reliably then I ever could. Maple is a software that allows me to go beyond routine engineering calculations and gives me the tools to reach levels of insight and understanding that were completely out of reach of the average engineer until a few years ago.

For the record, I have no business affiliations with Maplesoft. I’m writing this article because Maple makes such a difference in my work that I feel it is important to share my experiences so other engineers can get the same benefits.

Hi,

I'm an industrial engineering student who's running into problems with solving a simple system of non-linear equations.

Why do I get this error when issuing the solve command? I'm pretty sure I'm only passing two lists into the function?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Joshua

 

Currently calculations: equations, regression analysis, differential equations, etc; to mention a few of them; are developed using traditional methods ie even are proposed and solved by hand and on paper. In teaching our scientists and engineers use the chalkboard as a way to reach students and enable them to solve their calculation. To what extent Maple contributes to research on new mathematical models applied science and engineering ?. Maplesoft appears as a proposal to resolve problems with our traditional proposed intelligent algorithms, development process, embedded components, and not only them but also generates type applications for Apple ipad tablets signature. Based on the computer algebra system Maple Maplesoft gives us the package which works exactly like we were on our work. I will show how mathematics is developed from a purely basic to reach modeling differential equations applied to education and engineering. Also visualizare current techniques for developing applications for mobile devices.

Today science professionals in engineering software used to only work on the desktop and even just looking to download and use mobile apps math; but they are not able to design their own applications.Maplesoft to set the solution to it through its Maple package; software supports desktop and mobile; solves problems of analysis and calculation with Embedded Components. To show this we have taken the area of different mathematical topics; fixed horizontally to a certain range of parameters and not just a constant as it is customary to develop. This paper shows how the Embedded Components allow us to develop mathematics in all areas. Achieving build applications that are interactive in mobile devices such as tablets; which are used at any time. Maple gives us design according to our university or research need, based on contemporary and modern mathematics.With this method we encourage students, teachers and researchers to use graphics algorithms.

The Embedded Components are containers that currently use industries for modeling complex systems to find viable solutions in real time and thus avoid huge wait times and overload our computer; by this paper should show you how to implement a dynamic worksheet through Embedded Components in Maple; it goes from finding solutions to ordinary differential equations partial; which interact with the researcher using different parameters.
Using graphical programming will find immediate solutions to selected problems in science and engineering criteria of variability and boundary conditions evolving development with buttons on multiple actions.

Hey Forums!

 

Im using maple 16 for some rather simple Engineering calculatioins. One thing about using maple bothers me, and that is the way my result is displayed.

 

Here is an example

Here is another

 

Adding "simplify" or "evalf" sometimes does the trick, but id really like...

Hello,

for my mechanical engineering studies we have to optimize an engine during a workshop. Therefore we have to use a numerical dsolve to solve the equation of motion. I have to get the maximum bearing reaction for a constant rpm. In order to get this I can't think of anything else but use the dsolve solution and use it in maximize.

 

ysk_2 := t -> -rc*cos(phi(t))-lp*cos(alpha(t))-lkb-y(t);
ysp_2 := t -> -rc*cos(phi(t))-lp2*cos(alpha(t))-y(t);

Hi!

I just started using Maple for my engineering study some weeks ago, i have had luck finding help by google and forums so far. But now i ran into the first problem i can't find any answers for.

I want to add some values in a table like you can in excel. The values have to change like everything else in the document when then references changes and
