MBDyn features the integrated multidisciplinary analysis of multi-body, multi-physics systems, including nonlinear mechanics of rigid and flexible constrained bodies, smart materials, electric networks, active control, hydraulic networks, and essential fixed-wing and rotorcraft aerodynamics. It allows you to simulate the behavior of heterogeneous mechanical, aero-servo-elastic systems based on first principles equations. It is being actively developed and used in the aerospace and automotive fields for dynamics analysis and simulation of complex systems. The extension of available analysis domains to new models, and new analysis domains, is planned and problem-driven.
Finesse is a numeric simulation for laser interferometers using the frequency domain and Hermite-Gauss modes. It is easy to use for students. For basic use, including graphical output, no commercial software is required. The implemented physics are well documented in a 180-page manual. Simple examples are provided. Finesse can be used to compute a great variety of interferometer signals for control systems, including longitudinal control, alignment control, and thermal compensation.
Slipstream is a multi-body vehicle simulator. Instead of using some sort of specific empirical model of a particular type of vehicle, vehicles are modeled as assemblies of interconnected moving parts. This allows any kind of vehicle to be modeled, and the whole model is completely parametric so that everything can be configured from the mass of the chassis to suspension geometry and engine and transmission characteristics. Slipstream can be executed either in real-time or off-line through control scripts, and every quantity calculated during the simulation can be logged for plotting or further analysis, so it can be used as a game or as a tool to study vehicle dynamics.
ESMF is software for building and coupling weather, climate, and related models. The premise is that complicated applications should be broken up into smaller pieces, or components. A component is a unit of software composition that has a coherent function, and a standard calling interface and behavior. Components can be assembled to create multiple applications, and different implementations of a component may be available.
Code_Aster offers a full range of multi-physical analysis and modelling methods that go well beyond the standard functions of software for computational thermomechanics: static and dynamic mechanics, linear or not, modal analysis, harmonic and random response, seismic analysis, acoustics, thermics, fracture, damage and fatigue, multiphysics, drying and hydratation, metallurgy analysis ,soil-structure, fluid-structure interactions, geometric and material non linearities, and contact and friction. It has a wide range of material properties (95 constitutive laws): porous media, geomaterials, damage, elastoplasticity, elastoviscoplasticity, etc., a wide range of finite elements (395), and a wide range of loadings.
The Cafu Engine is an all-purpose, modern 3D graphics engine and game development kit. It is feature complete to get you started quickly. It can be used to create a variety of 3D applications, including games, simulations, and training and architectural software. Written in C++, the tools, libraries, and framework have been designed to make the development of new games and other 3D applications easy. They are actively and continuously developed in order to provide the latest technology.
OpendTect is a seismic interpretation software system. It enables you to process, visualize, and interpret multi-volume seismic data using attributes and modern visiualization techniques such as stereo viewing and volume rendering. Visualization elements can be moved freely through data space to interactively analyze data from stored volumes, or data calculated on-the-fly. For more advanced work, commercial plugins are available.
