Maplesoft announced the MapleSim Hydraulics Library from Modelon. The new component library is the result of a technology partnership with Modelon, developer of the Modelica libraries. According to the company, using the new library will allow engineers to seamlessly incorporate industry-tested hydraulics components while continuing to take full advantage of all the modeling, analysis, and simulation abilities of MapleSim.
The library includes more than 150 components for modeling pumps, motors, cylinders, restrictions, valves, hydraulic lines, lumped volumes, and sensors. It enables engineers to produce high-fidelity models by accounting for compressible oil and cavitation effects.
"Hydraulics systems are notoriously difficult to model with high accuracy, but so important to understanding system-level behavior," said Laurent Bernardin, executive vice president and chief scientist at Maplesoft. "Now, as a result of our partnership with Modelon, customers can take instant advantage of all the great expertise and experience that has gone into the Modelon Hydraulics Library from inside the MapleSim environment, so they can meet, and exceed, their system-level requirements."
