Version 1.6

Aircraft Dynamics Library 1.6 is part of Modelon’s 2022.1 release.

New versions of Modelon libraries are sold and distributed directly from Modelon, as well as approved resellers.

New features

  • Two new experiment examples showcase capabilities for aircraft performance simulations. Those are the CruiseClimb and the ConstantAltitudeCruise experiments.


  • Upgraded the library to be compliant with MSL 4.0.0. Note that there is no backward compatibility of the library to the previous version of MSL 3.2.3.
  • Refactorized initialization for the motion blocks.

    The initialization is now more versatile allowing initialization with different sets of variables.

  • Improved implementation of the aerodynamics model.

    The new template and grouping of dynamic state calculations improves readability and simplifies extending the aerodynamics model.

  • Other minor improvements and bug fixes.

Moved classes

  • AircraftDynamics.Aircraft.Airframes.Aerodynamics.Motion.FreeMotionInWnB → AircraftDynamics.Aircraft.Airframes.Aerodynamics.Motion.FreeMotion

    The old FreeMotion and FreeMotionInWnB has been merged, and the initialization behavior should be set with the new initialization blocks.

  • AircraftDynamics.Aircraft.Airframes.Aerodynamics.Templates.PartialAero → AircraftDynamics.Aircraft.Airframes.Aerodynamics.Templates.Basic

New classes

  • Classes under the package AircraftDynamics.Aircraft.Airframes.Aerodynamics.Motion.Initialization.

Removed classes

  • Classes under the package AircraftDynamics.Examples.HighPerformance were moved to the IndustryExamples library.
