Simscape Fluids

Model and simulate fluid systems

Simscape™ Fluids™ provides component libraries for modeling and simulating fluid systems. It includes models of hydraulic pumps, valves, actuators, pipelines, and heat exchangers. You can use these components to develop fluid power systems such as front-loader, power steering, and landing gear actuation systems. Simscape Fluids also enables you to develop engine cooling, gearbox lubrication, and fuel supply systems. You can integrate mechanical, electrical, thermal, and other physical systems into your model using components from the Simscape family of products.

Simscape Fluids helps you develop control systems and test system-level performance. You can create custom component models with the MATLAB® based Simscape language, which enables text-based authoring of physical modeling components, domains, and libraries. You can parameterize your models using MATLAB variables and expressions, and design control systems for your hydraulic system in Simulink®. To deploy models to other simulation environments, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems, Simscape Fluids supports C-code generation.
