A simple and really cool tool and the one that we are going to learn to use is Scilab.

What is Scilab ?

Scilab is free and open source software for numerical computation providing a powerful computing environment for engineering and scientific applications.

What does Scilab do ?

Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions. It has a high level programming language allowing access to advanced data structures, 2-D and 3-D graphical functions.

A large number of functionalities is included in Scilab:

  • Maths & Simulation
    For usual engineering and science applications including mathematical operations and data analysis. 
  • 2-D & 3-D Visualization
    Graphics functions to visualize, annotate and export data and many ways to create and customize various types of plots and charts.
  • Optimization
    Algorithms to solve constrained and unconstrained continuous and discrete optimization problems.
  • Statistics
    Tools to perform data analysis and modeling
  • Control System Design & Analysis
    Standard algorithms and tools for control system study
  • Signal Processing
    Visualize, analyze and filter signals in time and frequency domains.
  • Application Development
    Increase Scilab native functionalities and manage data exchanges with external tools.
  • Xcos – Hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator
    Modeling mechanical systems, hydraulic circuits, control systems…


Where can I get this Software?

As always, just clic on BATMAN.

And also, very important! You will need a beginers guide that will help you out in your familiarization with the program. To download the guide just clic on ROBIN.

Here is a video with basic operations made in Scilab.
