The Martian: Can you save Mark Watney? (Part 1) 4

About a year ago, I read the book The Martian, by Andy Weir. I really enjoyed the story, with all the technical details of how Mark Watney solves one problem after another to survive alone on... read more >>

Identifying the root cause of an algebraic constraint violation 2

Today I will share a technique I often use when debugging Simulink models, and more especially Simscape models. Algebraic Constraint Violated Did you ever run into the following... read more >>

Creating Custom Valve in Simscape 5

Today I want to share a technique I like to use when I need to create custom hydraulic components in Simscape. The Problem I often get questions similar to the following from users: I need... read more >>

Simuflate: A time-based simulation of the Patriots’ footballs 12

Today I want to share a discussion I had with a few fellow guest bloggers: Corey Lagunowich, Zack Peters, Matt Brauer and Seth Popinchalk. Deflate-gate Corey: Hey guys, did you hear about the... read more >>

What If? – The Little Planet 3

Recently, I was happy to find in my mailbox the book What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions, from Randall Munroe, the author of the website Since I am... read more >>

From SolidWorks to SimMechanics 28

This week we see how to export a CAD assembly from SolidWorks to SimMechanics. Once a mechanism is translated into a SimMechanics model, we can interface it with Simulink to perform a wide range of analysis or design tasks not available in most CAD software.... read more >>

Banking on the Hyperloop 1

This week, Matt Brauer is back to improve his three-dimensional analysis of the hyperloop transportation concept to include banking of the vehicle within the tube.... read more >>

Flexible Bodies in SimMechanics 9

This week we see how to create flexible bodies in SimMechanics. For that, we will use techniques seen in previous posts like Building Models with MATLAB Code and Self-Modifying Subsystems.... read more >>

Modeling Thermal Liquid Systems: Choosing a Water Heater 21

This week we talk about the new Simscape Thermal Liquid domain introduced in R2013b, and we see how it helped me to analyze how much I pay for hot water in my house.... read more >>

Win Olympic Gold with SimMechanics: Modeling Figure Skating and Angular Momentum 6

With the XXII Winter Olympics starting this week, I thought we should take the time to model something from the games! So lets look at how conservation of angular momentum is important in figure skating.... read more >>
