WATERLOO, Canada, Dec. 19 -- MapleSim, the new high-performance multi-domain modeling and simulation tool from Maplesoft, is now available for purchase globally. After months of intense pilot testing and feedback from approximately fifteen hundred organizations spanning 85 countries, MapleSim is now ready for engineers eager to dramatically shorten their product development cycle and provide their companies with a competitive advantage.
With the cutting edge physical modeling techniques in MapleSim, the time and cost spent creating models is drastically reduced. Users can simply create the system diagram on the screen, in the same way they would draw it on paper. The model equations are then generated automatically.
MapleSim applies symbolic preprocessing techniques to these model equations, creating simplified and highly efficient models. Code generated from these simplified models can be exported to real-time and other applications. Because of the symbolic preprocessing, this code runs ten to one hundred times faster for complex models.
MapleSim contains powerful tools for model design and analysis, including dynamic analysis, control design, and optimization. MapleSim even allows users to easily create custom components and live design documentation.
"There's little point in building a skyscraper on a bad foundation, which is why it is so important to me that MapleSim's math engine is the best in the world," said Edward Melcarek, who is the director of research and development at Sono-Dyne Inc. and a pilot user of MapleSim. "The palettes and menu are very well thought out and I especially like the drag and drop modules that can be calibrated at one's preferences. MapleSim is the most user-friendly math modeling software and I can see it becoming a 'must have' tool among engineers, scientists, and designers."
MapleSim brings together the world's most advanced symbolic computing engine and traditional numeric solvers to supercharge the simulation and modeling process. With the Maple computation engine at its core to provide the automatic generation of equations, model simplification, and analysis tools, savings in the design process can range from weeks to months.
"It has been exciting to see the significant progress in the development of MapleSim," said Jim Cooper, CEO of Maplesoft. "With many passionate users giving us constructive feedback, we have turned MapleSim into a truly user-driven product. Thanks to users who took the opportunity to interact with the Maplesoft product development team and influence the next generation of modeling and simulation tools, we have a product that is truly outstanding."

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
