In my last blog post, Migration to Newer Library Versions, I looked at using conversion scripts to migrate your library to newer versions of other libraries used. But how are these conversion scripts created? In this blog post I’m going to go through an approach you can use to...

Two of the many new features in Dymola 2022 – “Max run time” and “Stop when steady state is reached”
In Dymola 2022 there are a number of new features ranging from simulation stop time auto adjustment all the way to the implementation of cross platform FMUs, the latter will be a feature of my colleague’s future blog post. In this post we will focus on two new features...
This blog post seeks to raise awareness of how objects such as visualisers/visualizers reference global settings that can be enabled and adjusted from within the Animation Setup and World objects within Dymola. Often we want to be able to visualise the application of forces and torques to better understand...
Despite SI units being the recognized scientific standard, other units and unit systems are widely used to this day. Even within the metric unit scheme there are often more typical units which are preferred to match a user’s model type or preference. In addition to common alternate metric units...
This blog post seeks to clear your doubts on managing libraries and models. When should we Load or Open a library? When should we use Save All, Save or Save Total? Using the right option for what you are wanting to achieve can save you and other colleagues and...
Dassault Systèmes recently released Dymola 2021x, which provides a number of improvements to the modelling and simulation tool. In this blog post, I’m going to highlight some of the changes in Dymola 2021x that you can benefit from. New Modelica Standard Library The Modelica Standard Library supplied has been...
There are many ways to control a vehicle in Dymola. This includes constraining it in a rig, using a closed loop driver model or defining open loop controls. But if you want to use it in a Driver-In-The-Loop scenario then the VeSyMA-DiL library will allow you to do that....
In the Modelica language, the annotation keyword is used to define graphics, documentation, menus and many other attributes that do not affect the behaviour of the system modelled. In this post I’m going to focus on the class annotations that let you store the simulation settings used to control...
I thought we’d have a look at some interesting non-automotive applications for my next few blog posts. I’ve been meaning to write some for a while. Speaking to one of my colleagues in South Africa I learnt about his area’s reduced domestic water flow in a bid to save...
We’re all familiar with shortcuts to improve workflow. Some are widely known, such as Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to quickly copy and paste text or images (or components/models in Dymola). Others are not, but that doesn’t make them less handy. Here are 3 simple Dymola shortcuts...
