Demo files from March 10, 2011 webinar titled 'Mathematical Modeling with MATLAB Products'.
The first demo features a drug interaction example where MATLAB's surface fitting capabilities are used to model anesthetic response based on opioid and sedative concentrations.
The second demo features a gantry crane example where Symbolic Math Toolbox is used to derive system equations. The gantry crane is modeled as a moving cart with a pendulum attached to it, which unloads cargo from a ship. After deriving the system equations, they are solved for different cart acceleration profiles, and an optimal profile is determined that minimizes payload swing.
