Model and simulate rotational and translational mechanical systems

Simscape Driveline™ (formerly SimDriveline™) provides component libraries for modeling and simulating rotational and translational mechanical systems. It includes models of worm gears, lead screws, and vehicle components such as engines, tires, transmissions, and torque converters. You can use these components to model the transmission of mechanical power in helicopter drivetrains, industrial machinery, automotive powertrains, and other applications. You can integrate electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and other physical systems into your model using components from the Simscape™ family of products.

Simscape Driveline 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 physical system in Simulink®. To deploy your models to other simulation environments, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems, Simscape Driveline supports C-code generation.
