We are delighted to announce that Dymola 2018 was released on June 2, 2017.
Modeling and simulation
Dymola 2018 provides added support for creating template models from existing test models. Such refactoring of models is facilitated by Dymola suggesting suitable base classes and replaceable components.
Enhanced support to analyze the interaction between models and the numeric integration has been added, helping the user to improve models for more efficient simulation and to tune the numeric integration to match the needs of the model. In some cases bad numeric behavior may indicate a more serious modeling problem or an unexpected interaction between subsystems.
To improve simulation performance, support for sparse numeric solvers has been extended. Inline implicit solvers have been implemented for predictable real-time behavior of embedded code.
New Modelica libraries
Four new Modelica libraries are introduced in Dymola 2018, providing a wide range of solutions for thermal system simulation and vehicle modeling.
- Thermal Systems Library
- Vehicle Systems Modeling and Analysis (VeSyMA) Library
- Vehicle Systems Modeling and Analysis (VeSyMA) – Powertrain Library
- Vehicle Systems Modeling and Analysis (VeSyMA) – Suspensions Library
The complementary Vehicle Systems Modeling and Analysis (VeSyMA) – Engines Library is available since earlier releases.
