Ground-breaking software for simulation and scientific visualisation. Through innovative use of interactive graphics, Sysquake reveals insights into complex mathematical systems.
Sysquake is expected to be used mainly for three different purposes.
Understanding basic concepts
In science as well as in engineering, theory is often not very intuitive at first, because it relates quantities from different domains: energies and positions, time and frequency, temperatures and entropies. In automatic control, where feedback is used to improve performance of any kind of system, transient behavior, such as settling time, overshoot, and risk of actuator saturation, is typically analyzed in the time domain; while the stability, noise rejection, and different kinds of robustness are more easily expressed in the frequency domain. The basic mechanisms which relate these quantities can be illustrated very effectively with Sysquake.
The quality of a device is always the result of a compromise. Multiple objectives, such as the speed, the accuracy and the cost, must be taken into account simultaneously and have contradictory requirements. Sysquake helps a lot to find which compromises are feasible, how to push the design in the desired direction, and how to modify the specifications in case they do not permit a satisfying solution.
Developing and testing new design methods
Some design methods still in use were developed at the time when computers were either nonexistent or too expensive, or too slow for interaction. While they can also benefit from Sysquake, they are better complemented or replaced by approaches which offer more degrees of freedom for better performances. A lot of work can undoubtedly be done in this field.
