New Maple Flow Product from Maplesoft Provides a Mathematics Tool for Engineering Projects

Maplesoft announced Maple Flow, a new mathematics tool that allows engineers to brainstorm, develop, and document their mathematics and analyses.

Maple Flow provides a virtual, whiteboard-style environment that automatically keeps calculations live as users refine, reposition, and develop their calculations. In addition to the new Maple Flow, Maplesoft has also announced a new release of the comprehensive math software, Maple. Both products offer access to the math engine, with Maple Flow providing an interface and workflow specifically tailored to design engineers doing calculations and scratchpad math, while Maple is a more general purpose tool that supports the advanced mathematical analysis and algorithm development work done by research engineers.

Maple Flow allows design engineers to sketch out and formalize technical ideas, revising, and reordering content with drag-and-drop behavior. Users can add math, text, and images to a live, interactive document, and Maple Flow keeps all of the mathematics automatically updated. The Maple Flow environment handles the design calculations that lie at the heart of virtually all engineering projects, such as circuit analysis, beam loading, highway pavement design, and combustion.

In addition to Maple Flow, Maplesoft has also released a new version of Maple, the advanced analysis and algorithm development tool for research engineers. Per the company, Maple is used around the world for a variety of advanced projects, such as electrical power systems, signal processing, and structural and civil engineering. The latest release, Maple 2021, offers a range of enhancements across the entire product, from small productivity changes to new areas of mathematics.  Improvements include a stronger math engine that can tackle even more problems, a streamlined workflow, and expanded tools for signal processing, working with thermophysical data, and physics.
