This one-day course gives an introduction to the usage of the Modelica.Mechanics libraries. The course is designed to give an overview of the contents of the libraries and teach you how to use them for model base design and analysis. The course practices how to build different mechanical systems from primitives, but also how to create your own primitives with Modelica code.

The course covers the following topics:

Introduction to Mechanical Modeling

  • Available Libraries for Mechanical modelling
  • Commercial and free
  • Modelica.Mechanics.Rotational
  • Modelica.Mechanics.Translational
  • Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody

Working with the Translational and Rotational Libraries

  • Basic components
  • Sign convention and implications
  • Force and torque balance
  • Flipping components
  • Component implementation

Working with the MultiBody Library

  • Connector definition
  • Representation of position and orientation
  • Closing a loop
  • Branch functions
  • Connection graphs
  • Assemblies
  • Graphics
  • Primitives
  • Visualizers
  • Post-processing
  • Component implementation
