Dymola is a complete tool for modeling and simulating integrated and complex systems. It is used in automotive, aerospace, energy, robotics, packaging, process and other industries. 

Dymola makes it possible to simulate the dynamic behavior and complex interactions among systems of many engineering fields, such as mechanical, electrical, thermodynamic, hydraulic, pneumatic, thermal and control systems. This enables users to build more integrated models with simulation results that better depict reality.

Support for the FMI open standard ensures easy integration in CAE tool chains and with MATLAB/Simulink. 

Dymola and Modelica

Dymola is based on the Modelica open standard, an object-oriented, declarative, multi-domain language for component-oriented modeling of complex systems.

The free Modelica language is developed by the non-profit Modelica Association, which also develops the free Modelica Standard Library. Version 3.1 of the library contains about 920 generic model components and 615 functions in various domains. The library is shipped with all Dymola configurations.

Improving energy supply efficiency

Ceres Power is a leading alternative energy company that develops fuel-cell technology for use in small-scale CHP products for residential and energy-security applications.

“Dymola takes out the guesswork so that physical prototypes have predictable performance. This means that we build far fewer prototypes than would otherwise be required, saving thousands of hours in the development cycle.”

Using Dymola for system modeling of new-generation aircraft

Aircraft systems require complex test rigs. Saab uses 3D data created with CATIA in Dymola to model and simulate the functioning of these systems. This enables designers to find errors that might otherwise remain undetected until late in the development process. Modelon has supplied Saab with a Dymola-derived solution for model-based development.
