The University of Warwick uses Dymola

The University of Warwick is just one of many universities where Dymola is being used for both teaching and research purposes. Here are some examples:

Teaching

  • 1st year engineering students experience Dymola as part of their “Design for Function” module where they use Dymola to create a thermal model of a house
  • 3rd year students studying Systems Engineering carry out a design project using Dymola to build a hybrid electric driveline model
  • Dymola licenses are available for student use within the School of Engineering’s computer labs enabling students to use Dymola on any other project during their studies at Warwick
  • Dymola was selected because the concepts of simulation can be introduced at an early stage.  With previous simulation tools it was necessary to wait until the physics and mathematics modules had been studied before being able to introduce simulation

Academic research

  • Dymola is used by Ph.D students and research staff within the School of Engineering and WMG
  • Projects relate to plant modelling of chassis and powertrain systems including hybrids. Dymola manages the modelling of these complex systems and provides a convenient interface to Simulink for integration with control algorithms
