openEMS is an electromagnetic field solver using the FDTD method. It employs a fully 3D Cartesian and cylindrical coordinate graded mesh. Matlab (or Octave) is used as an easy and flexible scripting interface. Advanced Features include: multi-threading, SIMD (SSE), and MPI support for high speed FDTD.
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.
Speed Dreams is a fork of the open racing car simulator Torcs. It aims at implementing exciting new features, cars, tracks, and AI opponents to make a more enjoyable game for the player, and at constantly improving visual and physics realism. Featuring 44 cars, 44 tracks, and three first-class AI opponents, Speed Dreams is suitable for use as a racing game, as a serious race simulator, and for scientific research.
