Each of the 8 sessions are available to watch now. Check them out! 

The Unique Properties of Engineering Math

While math is just math, engineering math is different. Engineering math has properties and requirements that are rather unique. These are defined by what the equations and parameters represent, the context in which they exist, and how they’re archived and implemented in practice. In this session, you’ll learn more about this topic, and how it has driven the design of Maple Flow.
Powering Up Your Math: Five Calculations that Electrical Engineers Should Know How to Do

Electrical engineers are a unique breed. Their work is mathematically demanding, and they constantly face challenging technical problems. An electrical engineer might derive circuit equations or a semiconductor model, do signal processing, or calculate the earthing requirements for a substation.

In this session, we will introduce five calculations that electrical engineers typically do, covering the whole spectrum from symbolic math and data analysis to signal processing and numeric equation solving.

Four Calculations that Civil Engineers Should Know How to Do

From structural steel and reinforced concrete to highways and transportation, Civil Engineers build the world around us. To do that, they need to do their math.

Some calculations are formalized in design guides, such as Eurocodes, AASHTO and IBC. The equations tend to be mathematically simple, but there are lots of them, and you need engineering experience to determine the which, why, and when.

Some calculations need the engineer to be a touch more mathematically insightful, and might even demand more computing horsepower to complete.

In all cases, Civil Engineers need validated, reliable calculation software. Some use spreadsheets (like Excel), while others use dedicated engineering math software.

This webinar explores four calculations that Civil Engineers do, contrasting the implementation in both Excel and Maple Flow. The calculations are chosen to present a broad set of principles that Civil Engineers need to be familiar with to succeed with calculation software.

Q&A with the Maple and Maple Flow Product Manager, Dr. Samir Khan

Do you want to know where Maple Flow is headed or are you puzzled over functionality? Are you interested in understanding how Maple Flow can help you with your engineering calculations and analysis? This is your chance to get the inside track from the Maple Flow Product Manager, and ask those burning questions you’ve always wanted answered! Even if you’re not ready with your own questions yet, come to hear what other engineers are asking about. Often, the best information comes from the questions others are asking.

MapleSim for Automation: Complete Modeling Workflow, Analysis, and Model Exportability

In this presentation the workflow from initial concept of a system all the way to connectivity with other software will be explored within the context of the automation industry. The MapleSim modeling and simulation environment allows users to begin from a new idea or CAD-based drawing to create virtual prototypes with which dynamic simulations can be performed.

Throughout this modeling process the built-in MapleSim apps will provide deeper insight into the behavior of the system and can be used for the analysis of the system response, exploration of system parameter sensitivity, model optimization, and more. Once the modeling process is complete there are various options for exporting the model for use with automation software including: C code, a Simulink S-Function, an FMU for B&R Automation Studio, as well as an FMU with MapleSim Insight data. The benefit of the latter is that regardless of the final implementation of the exported model a 3D visualization of the system will be provided within MapleSim Insight for visual debugging and capturing data.

This presentation will focus on applications related to CAD based modeling, motor sizing, custom design tools, optimization, and connectivity. You will be able to see for yourself how you can apply system-level modeling with MapleSim to improve your modeling and testing workflow so that your final product meets your performance goals.

MapleSim for Hydraulic Systems: Complete Modeling Workflow, Analysis and Customization

In this presentation, you'll learn how virtual prototypes and dynamic simulation enable you to improve your hydraulic systems. This presentation includes an exploration of a moving platen of an injection molding machine and observe the response of the system during motion. We will look into how to apply system-level modeling to design a dynamic model of any hydraulic system, analyze the system response, apply customization, and tune the system parameters, such that the final product meets your performance goals.

Modeling Web Handling Systems in MapleSim: Leveraging Simulation for Better Design

In this session, you'll learn about MapleSim’s Web Handling component library and how to perform dynamic simulations on a wide variety of web systems. We will review a number of examples including modeling dancers, investigating tension zones, accumulators, roller slippage, and system modeling for control validation.

Q&A with the MapleSim Application Engineering Team

This is your opportunity ask questions of senior members of the Maplesoft AE team. The panel will include people who are highly involved with the development of various aspects of MapleSim. Between them, this panel has many years of experience developing software tools for system-level simulation. This is an interactive session, so come with lots of questions!
