Mathematics-Based Modeling of a Hybrid Electric Vehicle
The automotive industry is in transformation. The complexity of the automobile has increased exponentially in the past decades and has triggered a design revolution that stresses detailed modeling and simulation steps prior to committing to metal and plastic. With new generation vehicles deploying hybrid (HEV), fully electric (EV), and fuel cell powerplants, the need for advanced physical modeling solutions is considerably greater due to increasing system complexity.
Symbolic Computation Techniques for Advanced Mathematical Modeling
This webinar will demonstrate, through several applications and numerous case studies, how Maple is helping companies worldwide, including NASA, JPL, Toyota, Argiva, and Marquardt Gmbh, save time and reduce cost by providing more efficient and smarter methods for mathematical analysis.
Advanced Symbolic and Numeric Techniques for Vibration Analysis and Attenuation
Resonance has always been a serious source of noise, mechanical wear and dynamic instability, particularly in large complex drivetrains that need to go through unpredictable duty cycles. Many modeling techniques have been developed over the years to help engineers to identify the net resonances of their systems so that appropriate steps may be taken to attenuate them without adding inefficiencies into the design.
Transforming the Freshman Cornerstone Design Course Through Modeling and Simulation
This webinar presents a detailed case study of the recent McMaster University initiative to enrich its cornerstone course. The key new element is the introduction of a dynamic modeling software package to allow students to analyze and explore the system dynamics, and ultimately the design options, for a real system.
Advanced Physical Modeling Tackles the Complexity of Modern Engineering
This webinar illustrates how engineering researchers are making significant strides in their work with the help of advanced physical modeling technology. It highlights the work of three researchers, and discusses such diverse projects as space rovers, hockey sticks, parallel manipulators, and electric and hybrid-electric vehicle batteries. In this panel discussion lead by Dr. Derek Wright of Maplesoft, learn firsthand how advanced physical modeling and simulation technology can enrich your classroom and accelerate your research.
Educational Techniques for the Next Generation of Engineers
The way we teach undergraduates mathematical and design concepts in engineering modeling has remained unchanged for almost half a century. Industry is undergoing a major transformation and we stand to fall behind in our pedagogy. However, new software is finally emerging that promises to reconcile theory with application and design in industry, research, and ultimately in the classroom.
Challenges and Solutions for Engineering Educators
In this webinar we will illustrate how you can reinforce engineering concepts using a combination of theory, simulation, and hardware and show how the math can be used in a more meaningful way. Education-focused examples of MapleSim will be demonstrated.
Advanced Physical Modeling Revitalizes the Freshmen “Cornerstone” Design Course
Engineering design projects are an important learning tool for first-year engineering students. These projects provide a structured approach to the design process, giving students a solid understanding of how to move from a mere concept to a working model of a system. These projects not only give students the knowledge and skills to produce such outcomes, but also give students confidence in their abilities to complete future projects.
