Mordred is a tool for mechanical engineers to calculate the movements and forces of a mechanical system. For the existence of a solution, it is necessary that the system be statically statically determinate. The results can be logged to a textual report, and can be displayed graphically. You define your mechanism graphically, for the most part, but can define your forces and coordinates textually in order to reach full precision. It requires Java 6 in order to run.
octopus is a program aimed at the ab initio virtual experimentation on a hopefully ever increasing range of systems types. Electrons are describe quantum-mechanically within the Density-Functional Theory (DFT), in its time-dependent form (TDDFT) when doing simulations in time. Nuclei are described classically as point particles. Electron-nucleus interaction is described within the Pseudopotential approximation.
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.
pyXSD maps XML and XSD (XML Schema) files into Python, checks the XML against the schema, and transforms XML documents according to user-specified Python classes. There is a framework to make these transformation classes easy to write. The program uses a simple, pythonic, non-DOM interface with the XML tree structure.
SEM2DPACK is a simulator of 2D elastic wave propagation and fracture dynamics that applies the Spectral Element Method (SEM, similar to mass-lumped high-order finite element methods). Flexibility and accuracy are the main goals. Although the emphasis is currently on computational seismology and earthquake source dynamics, this tool might attract a wider audience in computational mechanics, research, and engineering.
spsim is a simple yet realistic diffraction pattern simulator for single particle diffraction experiments, as those made possible with the advent of XFELs. It takes a PDB as input and outputs noise-free and realistic diffraction patterns according to the experimental conditions chosen by the user.
telepathic-critterdrug is a fork of Critterding, an artificial-life simulation, with five drugs added and a substrate for two kinds of telepathy. The critters are exposed to a secondary retina they can all read and write, using sensors and motors for high intensity or only the power of the minds for lower intensity, though drug use will modulate it. They can blink this and their main retina as a minor grace. The two blue tablets work on inhibitory neurons, and the red ones, excitatory. There is also a purple potentiator.
xylib is a portable C++ library for reading files that contain x-y data from powder diffraction, spectroscopy, or other experimental methods. Supported formats include plain text (CSV or TSV), Crystallographic Information File for Powder Diffraction (pdCIF), Siemens/Bruker UXD, Siemens/Bruker RAW v1/2/3, Philips UDF, Philips RD (raw scan) V3, Rigaku DAT, Sietronics Sieray CPI, DBWS/DMPLOT data file, Canberra MCA, XFIT/Koalariet XDD, RIET7/LHPM/CSRIET/ILL_D1A5/PSI_DMC DAT, Vamas ISO14976, and Princeton Instruments WinSpec SPE.
