Here are a couple more Dymola tips and tricks that you may want to incorporate into your daily Dymola work. Mark a model as the ‘Simulation Model’ How often has this happened to you? You’re modifying a sub-component of your simulation model and once you complete the change, quickly...

A few weeks ago, I was tasked with learning more about fluids modelling within Dymola. Complete with fluids component models, the Modelica Standard Library can be used to model 0-dimensional (0D) and 1-dimensional (1D) fluid systems. As with most things, learning by doing is a good idea. I therefore...
I have now been using Dymola and Modelica since 2007. Since then, I have learned a lot, been able to help users quite often and developed a few application libraries within Dymola. Some of these libraries have been included in the Dassault Systemes Dymola library portfolio for a number...
Down-sizing is very popular in engine design as it reduces fuel consumption while keeping the same power output as the bigger engine by using a turbocharger. A downsized engine uses a smaller cylinder and a higher boosting pressure to yield a higher cylinder pressure over a smaller displacement volume...
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...
While developing libraries there are many ideas that dawn on me that are normally accompanied by the phrase “How hard could it be to….”. This is the result of one of those thoughts. While developing ground contact models for our VeSyMA – Motorsports, 1D and 2D tests were created...
INTRODUCTION A synchroniser can be defined as a crucial internal shifting element present in manual, automated manual and dual clutch transmissions. Its objective is to match the circumferential speeds of parts to be connected in short periods of time with the application of minimal force, in the same way...
With the release of the latest version of Dymola, 2020, comes a slew of new features. Notably, this version of Dymola arrives with the latest edition of the Modelica Standard Library, version 3.2.3. Here’s a selection of the highlights in Dymola 2020. Plotting connector variables Earlier, my colleague Alessandro...
Everyday objects rarely move in ways that surprise us. One does not need an understanding of physics to catch a ball— human intuition is enough to predict its path. Knowledge of gravity and momentum is useful for quantifying and explaining the arc the ball follows, but it is not...
Since moving from the UK to the USA in 2018, I’ve noticed various little differences beyond the obvious between the two countries. Some are positive differences, like actual sunshine, decently sized parking spaces, drive-thru post boxes and cheap petrol. Other differences however are less than ideal, such as polar...
