What does Model-Based Design mean to you? 18

I stumbled upon a blog post over at The Green Garage where they interviewed a couple of my colleagues, Paul Smith and Shaun Kalinowski.  They talked to them in front of the MathWorks booth at the SAE... read more >>

Pick of the week: Customizing Simulink 2

This week I am borrowing the Pick of the Week blog format pioneered by Scott and Doug and carried on by the three amigos: Bob, Brett and Jiro. Simulink Pick of the Week Seth’s pick this week... read more >>

S-functions, Bus Signals, and Missing Documentation 24

This almost never happens, but today I get to share with you an undocumented Simulink capability! In R2009a the S-function builder has the ability to accept bus signals at its input and output... read more >>

Spring 2009 MATLAB Contest: Data Visualization 1

The Spring MATLAB programming contest has just begun. This contest is different from contests in the past, so I recommend you start by reading the contest rules. This contest is less about... read more >>

Parallel Computing with Simulink: Model Reference Builds 6

Have you seen the MATLAB Channel on YouTube??  I like the way you can express an idea using video, describe how things work, and then watch it work.  That is why I asked my friend Doug to help me... read more >>

My Favorite New Feature in R2009a: SimState 9

I am so excited about saving and restoring the simulation state in Simulink. This is my favorite feature of R2009a because it has been long anticipated and it enables important... read more >>

Continuing the semi-annual tradition, I am excited to announce the latest release of MATLAB and Simulink, R2009a.  Check out the Simulink release notes to get the full details of the release.  Here... read more >>

Models Inspired by Real Life 21

Often models are the predecessor to a real-life device; however, sometimes a device inspires the model. In the 1980s, there was a group known as the Leg Lab at CMU who researched running robots.  In... read more >>

Modeling Mechanical Systems: The Double Pendulum 34

Do you ever have to model mechanical systems?  Mechanical systems consist of bodies, joints, and force elements like springs.  In this post, I will show you how to model a double pendulum with base... read more >>

Where Does That Variable Come From? 28

Most Simulink models use workspace variable to define the important parameters.  For example, setting the gain value to K and then defining K in the workspace.  I wrote about initializing these... read more >>
