Mechanical System Modelling Path


The ability to properly simulate physical systems is crucial to ensure that the larger system is functioning correctly as a whole. Simulink has a dedicated mechanical modelling toolbox that can make the design easier to design and test. This learning track focusses on the design and simulation of mechanical systems and how this can be integrated with other software so that these models can be integrated with a larger design.

Learning Path Duration: 4 – 5 training days



MATLAB for Simulink Users

MATLAB provides the core mathematical execution and scripting engine for Simulink. This course gives Simulink users an overview of the MATLAB interface so that they are familiar with basic terms and workflows in MATLAB, including creating variables and functions.

Simulink for System and Algorithm Modelling

This course provides the basics of modelling and simulating discrete and continuous systems. Block diagrams make it easier for all members to understand the system and the successful modelling of systems and their model parameters can greatly improve the overall system design.

Modelling Physical Systems with Simscape

This course shows how the foundation library of Simscape can be used to model physical systems. With physical modelling in Simulink you can link mechanical and electrical systems together to create a complete system design. The ability to create custom components using the Simscape language greatly increases the potential design possibilities.


Modelling Multibody Mechanical Systems with Simscape

This course focuses on how to model rigid-body mechanical systems using Simscape Multibody. The ability to create simple multibody systems and ones involving complex geometries are covered in this course. Importing existing models from CAD software is discussed as it can greatly ease system design if all components are in one model.
