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...
I am always of the opinion that a large amount of small tweaks to the way we work every day will not only make our modelling more efficient, but also more enjoyable. So, here’s another relatively small tip that will speed up your modelling available in Dymola 2020 onwards....
Why save the translation log? Running simulations in batches can be useful for a number of reasons. Many times, the most convenient way to do that is to create a function that simulates a few models consecutively. One good example of a use case is when running a complete...
There are many advanced flags within Dymola that allow you to control how it works, but it has not always been straightforward to find out what advanced flags are available and where these can be set. From Dymola 2019 FD01, there has been a new way to display and...
In Dymola 2019 FD01 the functionality of Capture Parameters > As Model and Capture Parameters > As Favorite command was enhanced so that they can be used for tidying models that are extended from other models rather than from base classes. This blog entry describes this tidying process in...
