Mechanical Expressions 1.0

An Interactive Symbolic Mechanics Companion to Mathematica


Mechanical Expressions Mathematica 10 compatible Mechanical Expressions is a symbolic mechanics program. Create a model; specify the geometry using symbolic constraints; add velocities, masses, and force elements; and then extract mathematical expressions for output velocities, accelerations, and forces. Copy expressions for input into Mathematica, or copy them as Tex, MathML, or computer source code (in nine languages). Or, create an HTML5/JavaScript app, allowing you to communicate your design intent as an interactive, single-file web page that you can email to your colleagues or post on your website.

About the Developer

Saltire Software was founded in 1989 as a spin-off from Tektronix Computer Research Lab. Its award-winning Analytix product line features constraint-based mechanism design, synthesis, and analysis. Saltire has since developed mathematical software for leading calculator companies, and a category-leading optimization package for the floor-covering industry.

Mechanical Expressions is Saltire's latest release. It's the expanded version of Geometry Expressions to include mechanic functionality.
