Modelica Systems Simulation

Simulate the complex interactions between multi-domain physical systems

It is common practice today to use many different models to simulate the behavior of complex systems and products. These models rarely interoperate with one another and don’t exist in an "aggregated" environment that allows a "whole-system multi-physics simulation" of the complete product.

As the number and complexity of systems continues to grow, the effective modeling and simulation of these individual systems, and their interaction with other systems, becomes increasingly important. Systems engineering is essential to avoid detecting unexpected system interactions during the validation and verification phases of the product development process.



  • Rapidly model and simulate the performance of complex products and systems
  • Accelerate understanding and validation of complex systems through early virtual simulation
  • Quickly find solution to complex multi-physic system design problems
  • Use Modelica compliant component models to facilitate intellectual property capture for re-use
  • Leverage powerful and open model libraries for a large number of engineering domains to create customized components or adapt existing ones to match their unique cross-discipline system needs
  • Ability to integrate Modelica models with 3D geometry to perform virtual 3D simulations of complex mechanisms and systems
