can I change the behavior of maple to not represent 1/sqrt(2) as sqrt(2)/2? I guess in a mathmatician's view this is a simplification, but not from an engineering standpoint.
also, if I perform combine(sqrt(2)/(sqrt(m)*sqrt(k)),radical,symbolic) I get sqrt(2)*sqrt(1/m k) instead of the desired sqrt(2/(k*m))..is this related?
I'm sure there is a nuance that I am not getting...

Hi;
I am Abdul-Kareem from Iraq. I have BSc in computer since and BSc in electrical engineering. Now I am student in computer engineering to get MSc degree in Information Technology engineering. My research is "Design and Implementation a Multicast Routing Algorithm for a Network".
Please I need more information about my research and the related topics. Thank you .
Best regards.

Fedderik van der Bos created a worksheet for the Finite Element Method that is available in the download section for engineering applications; problem is, it uses a maple package (FEM) that is not posted on the site. The application is dated 2000. Does anyone have a copy of this package?

Is there a way to find out the rate of decay of function f(x) when x-> +infinity?
Hi all,
I just wanted to use this real-world engineering problem to practice problem-solving using Maple.
Suppose I have a function f(x) (probably complex valued),
how to find out its rate of decay as x approaches +infinity?
I used "limit" but it will give me a value, not a functional form.
I already knew my function has a limit =0 at x=+infinity.
And it is of fast decay.
I would like to bound the limiting behavior of f(x) by exp(-alpha*x) for some suitable constant alpha.
Is there a way to handle this in Maple?

Hi all, I am asking this for my engineering friend.
We've posted on Maple newsgroup and we just heard that here is another place where Maple experts appear, so we posted it again here to seek more advice -- because we have a struggling problem which annoyed us for several days already! Thank you!

Here is what I want to compute:
t22 := Re((1/2*(a^2+2*sigma2*(c+g*(ee+i*v)))^(1/2)*exp(.5*a*t)/
(1/2*(a^2+2*sigma2*(c+g*(ee+i*v)))^(1/2)*cosh(1/2*(a^2+2*sigma2*(c
+g*(ee+i*v)))^(1/2)*t)+.5*a*sinh(1/2*(a^2+2*sigma2*(c+g*(ee
+i*v)))^(1/2)*t)))^(2*a*xbar/sigma2))
Assuming all variables are real and positive...

Having looked recently at a suite of engineering software in use, I wondered whether engineers would need maths for much longer. Of course they’ll always need sufficient for business purposes, but my guess is maths will become unnecessary for engineering in much the same way as it’s unnecessary for weather forecasting. There would probably be a residual role for maths in engineering research, but not in the mainstream, and that would have huge implications for schools and universities. How do those engaged in teaching maths to budding engineers see the future?

Iam a Student in the faculty of engineering Petroleum department.
Iam Studying Oil Reservoir Simulation which havs many models.
Iam Studying the mathematical modeling of those reservoirs.
In this modeling we use PDEs to model that reservoir behaviour for years
we devide the reservoir into grid blocks each of its special dimensions and parameters
so for each grid block there are 3 phases which are oil, water, and gas equation (one for each phase of them)(Matrix Dimension = No. of phases * No. of grid blocks) in addition to the other parameters
there are some elements of the PDEs which is function in more than one parameter

**NEWEST VERSION OF MAPLESOFT’S FLAGSHIP PRODUCT DRAMATICALLY IMPROVES USER EXPERIENCE**

*Maple 11 is the Ideal Tool for Engineers and Scientists to Streamline and Increase Quality of Analytical Work*

**WATERLOO****, CANADA****, January 8, 2007 — **Maplesoft™, the leading provider of high-performance software tools for engineering, science and mathematics, announced a major release of Maple™, the company’s flagship product. Maple 11 features enhancements to its smart document interface, strong computation engine, and connectivity capabilities.

Its smart document environment automatically captures all technical knowledge in an electronic form that seamlessly integrates calculations, explanatory text and math, graphics, images and sound, and more. These concise live documents can be reused or shared across the organization.

“We initiated a radical change in the industry when we launched Maple 10 with its superior technical document and knowledge sharing capabilities”, said Maplesoft CEO Jim Cooper. “It changed the way people worked and Maple 11 represents another important leap forward in this direction. It is the leading tool for engineers and scientists to streamline and increase the quality of their analytical work. It also represents Maplesoft’s commitment to transforming the way our customers use technology.”

Maple 11 is supported by an extensive range of products for various industrial applications including automotive, aerospace, electronics, energy and finance. Companion products include automatic model generation, optimal design tools, intelligent control design, reference e-books, and more.

**MAPLESOFT’S LATEST TESTING SOLUTIONS PRODUCT OFFERS MAJOR ADVANCEMENTS IN ASSESSMENT TECHNOLOGY**

*Maple T.A. 3.0 is the only system **designed specifically** for courses using mathematics*

**Waterloo****, Canada****, January 8, 2007: **Maplesoft™, the leading provider of high-performance software tools for engineering, science and mathematics, today announced significant enhancements to Maple T.A.™, its Web-based testing and assessment system. The new version, Maple T.A. 3.0, features increased flexibility in content creation, an enhanced user interface, and improved grading and assessment capabilities. The product supports complex, free-form entry of mathematical equations and intelligent evaluation of responses, making it the only system designed for mathematics, science, or any course requiring mathematics.

“Maplesoft’s decades of experience in the academic market, expertise in creating dynamic technology solutions, and our collaboration with leading institutions in math education have resulted in a product that instructors can place their full trust in,” said Jim Cooper, Maplesoft CEO. “The latest release of Maple T.A. is a more intelligent and integrated product, and is the system of choice for creating content, testing, and assessment in the math education world.”

Hello all!
How can I get Maple 10 to output it's numbers using engineering notation (milli, micro, Mega, Giga, etc) instead of indices?
Thanks

Convolution of Finite Discrete Signals Tutorial Convolution of two finite discrete signals is a topic discussed in the Signals and Systems course offered by any electrical engineering faculty. This tutorial was created using Maple 10 using Maple components and can be use as part of computer aided teaching material or as a guided interactive tutorial. This worksheet can also be deployed on the web by using MapleNet. [

In structural engineering the y-axis direction in beam deflection calculations is reversed. A negetive deflection is an upward deflection.
I need to plot the deflection. A simple reflect command will do part of the trick, but the tickmarks are not reflected.
How do I reverse the y-axis direction so it will be negetive to positive from top to bottom?
Thanks.

thank you georgios kokovidis for acknowledging my question.thank you so much!however i still have questions.can anybody here please help me with this type of questions,im not an engineering or math major,so you can guys say im so bad with math.please help me.this are the questions.

Hi, all.
I want to write viewer/converter for mw/mws, so mw/mws format description needed. Google say nothing about mw/mws format. search.maplesoft.com likewise.
Can somebody help me with mw/mws format description? Is it possible to obtain such info from Maple developers? Is reverse engineering of mw/mws prohibited?
