A modelling and simulation tool for fluid power and mechatronic systems.
Hopsan is a modelling and simulation environment for fluid and mechatronic systems. It was originally developed for simulation of fluid power systems, but has also been extended with support for other domains such as electric power, mechanics, flight and vehicle dynamics.
Hopsan uses bi-directional delay lines, (or transmission line elements TLM) to connect physical component models, but also supports signal flow modelling with common mathematical operators and functions.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install Hopsan, simply use the following command:
