Wolfram SystemModeler, developed by Wolfram MathCore, is a platform for engineering as well as life science modeling and simulation based on the Modelica language. It provides an interactive graphical modeling and simulation environment and a customizable set of component libraries.


Features of Wolfram SystemModeler include:[1]

  • Based on the non-proprietary, object-oriented, equation based, Modelica language.
  • Graphical user interface for drag-and-drop modeling
  • Textual user interface for equation-based Modelica modeling, simulation, documentation, and analysis
  • A-causal (component based) and causal (block based) modeling
  • Multidomain modeling, including:
    • 1D and 3D mechanics
    • Electrics
    • Hydraulics
    • Thermodynamics
    • Controls engineering
    • Systems biology
  • Integration with Mathematica for analysis and documentation of models and simulations


Wolfram SystemModeler's primary interface, Model Center, is an interactive graphical environment including a customizable set of component libraries. Models developed in Model Center can be simulated in Simulation Center. The software also provides a tight integration with the Mathematica environment. This allows users that have both software to develop, simulate, document, and analyze their Wolfram SystemModeler models within Mathematica notebooks. The software is used within the engineering field as well as within life science.


Originally developed by MathCore Engineering as MathModelica, it was acquired by Wolfram Research on March 30, 2011.[2] It was then re-released as Wolfram SystemModeler on May 23, 2012,[3][4][5][6][7] with improved integration with Wolfram Research's Mathematica software.

Modeling Language[edit]

Wolfram SystemModeler uses the free object-oriented modeling language Modelica. Modelica is a non-proprietary, object-oriented, equation based language to conveniently model complex physical systems containing, e.g., mechanical, electrical, electronic, hydraulic, thermal, control, electric power or process-oriented subcomponents.
