Using Symbolic Math Toolbox to Develop Analytical Models of Aerospace and Defense Systems

Register to watch video

Dan Doherty, MathWorks

In this webinar we introduce how engineers at Aerospace and Defense companies use MATLAB and Symbolic Math Toolbox to derive analytical models of their systems. Because analytical models describe systems using math equations, they offer insight into the key parameters driving system behavior – insight that is often difficult to gain with purely numeric modeling approaches.

Through product demonstrations we will show how the Symbolic Math Toolbox notebook interface can help you manage and document the steps taken to derive your models. We will also show how symbolic results computed in the notebook can be integrated with MATLAB and Simulink.
