Maple is the world leader in numeric and symbolic computation solutions: used in Fortune 500 companies all over the world to analyze, explore, visualize, and solve engineering math and computation problems in a single environment.
Maple is used by Design Engineers and Advanced Analysts to quickly and accurately perform calculations and mathematical manipulations using live mathematical expressions. Its intuitive interface allows the direct use of live mathematical expressions, turning mathematical concepts into solutions through powerful symbolic processing and advanced numeric computation.
Maple enables the creation of intuitive user interfaces using ready-made components that directly integrate with the underlying algorithms and routines. These Functional Mock-Ups capture the technical knowledge behind the solution through fully-disclosed equations and documentation capabilities.

Maple boosts an extremely powerful math engine:

  • Analyze, explore, visualize, and solve engineering math and computation problems
  • Extensive code generation capabilities
  • Combined numeric and symbolic computations
  • Automatically addresses engineering units
  • Advanced analysis tools for mathematically deriving the equations and rigorously developing the concept

Maple is the kernel module upon which all other Maplesoft products are built.


MapleSim is the advanced system-level modeling solution based on the Maple mathematical engine and analysis environment to design and simulate multidomain systems, plants and controls in one single environment.

The schematic diagram interface enables rapid model development, thanks to the Maple symbolic computation foundation providing a highly concise, numerically efficient model formulation.

MapleSim enables Engineering System Designers to answer the most critical questions faced in the everyday activity “Will the system work as required?”, and “Can we make it work better?”, by developing virtual prototypes of multi-domain dynamic systems and performing functional validation, critical system-level parametric studies and optimizations.

The Control System Developer will be able to leverage MapleSim to develop high-fidelity models of complex dynamic systems for plant characterization and integrating models through automated code generation into (typically) MATLAB®/Simulink® for controller development.


Using MapleNet you will be able to easily deploy and share working Maple documents and MapleSim simulation models over the Internet. Using MapleNet, Engineering solutions can be deployed through web-publication and automatic code generation (C, Java, VB, FORTRAN...), allowing engineers and users to interact with content, perform changes, and visualize results all from within a standard web browser and with no need for a local installation of Maple or MapleSim.

This approach will easily capture technical knowledge and design documentation across companies, via an intuitive interface that supports multiple styles of interaction.

    Advantages for MapleSim adopters in the Heavy Machinery Industry

  •   Description

    In this webinar focused on the use of MapleSim, software used for the modeling of multidomain systems, we want to show how to solve the problems related to the world of heavy machinery industry, both in the design phase and in the performance optimization phase also thanks to the use of Maple, the associated symbolic calculus solver.

    The main challenges for the engineers are the integration between completely different systems, for example hydraulic and electrical systems which occur abundantly in this type of machines and how they interact with each other, the possibility of identifying any problems that may arise in the design phase, apply analysis tools and create a digital twin of the machine starting directly from customer CAD model.

    As a first example, we will illustrate the Flsmidth problem concerning the design of a complex mining machine that takes into account the amount of fuel necessary to operate, the maintenance costs and the infrastructure of the machine itself. A solution to this problem is to create a highly reliable model of the complex machine to analyze any drawbacks that may arise during phase production and, in addition, evaluate the stability of the machine based on load distribution and terrain irregularity.

    In the second example we will show a fully parametrized excavator model in which electrical, mechanical and hydraulic components interact with each other in order to perform the correct operations. For this purpose, the libraries to which these components belong and the use of the Toobox CAD library will be shown, as well as the apps and templates provided by MapleSim about parameter sweep, optimization and multibody analysis.

    As a third example, we will show a model of a crane mounted on a special offshore Aker Solutions machine: when the crane is moving, its dynamic behavior depends on the precise electrical and hydraulic interaction of the control valves, the performance of its hydraulic actuators, the inertia of its structure, its load and the interdependency between all the components. Using MapleSim, Aker Solutions reduced the time spent in the design process and was able to observe the impacts produced by the replacement or modification of the individual components to obtain an increasingly accurate model.

    Introduction to Maple and MapleSim capabilities

  • During this webinar we will show you a brief overview on Maple and MapleSim products, with specific emphasis on applications, and present two examples that could be very interesting for their potential impact on industrial, real world projects.

    For the first example we will use Maple to show how to leverage Maple in order to create a small worksheet on thermodynamics: the same concepts at the core of this example can be employed in more complex case studies (such as HVAC systems and thermodynamical cycle efficiency calculations).

    In the second example we will analyse the behavior of a dynamic mechanical system with MapleSim and the CAD Toolbox: these two tools allow the user to import a CAD model directly into the MapleSim environment and analyse the mechanical performances of the system in a most efficient way.
