Dymola is a physical modelling and simulation tool, used for model based design of complex systems.
Dymola uses the Modelica modelling language to define models and provides the user with open access to the language. This means that you are free to create your own model libraries or extend from the existing Modelica libraries to accelerate development times, reduce maintenance efforts and improve the level of reuse across projects.
A portfolio of multi-domain libraries covering the mechanical, electrical, control, thermal, pneumatic, hydraulic, powertrain, thermodynamics, vehicle dynamics, air-conditioning domains can be coupled together to form a single complete model of the system. Dymola is used by companies operating in many industries including automotive, aerospace, architecture, motorsport, energy and high tech.
Dymola supports the FMI Standard for the import and export of models. It supports FMI 1.0 and 2.0 for both model exchange and co-simulation. In addition, Dymola supports real-time simulation on a wide range of HiL platforms.
A demonstration version of Dymola is available for download. It gives you access to the core functionality of Dymola and the ability to build and simulate simple Modelica models but it doesn’t include access to any of the optional features or Modelica libraries. Full on-line documentation is available from within Dymola and contains a Getting Started guide and Reference Manuals.
There are some restrictions in the demo version and these can be overcome by applying for an evaluation license:
- Complex models cannot be simulated
- Only one external function call is allowed
