BioMAJ (BIOlogie Mises A Jour) is a workflow engine dedicated to data synchronization and processing. It automates the update cycle and the supervision of the locally mirrored data repository. The application is generalist, but was applied in the bioinformatics field for biological data bank management. The packaging includes workflow and indexing post-processing scripts for most used biological data banks. Developed in Java and Ant, the application is compatible with various Unix-based systems.
Quaternions are numbers with 4 parts: one for time and three for space. Command Line Quaternions is a set of command line functions that generate thousands of points of quaternions, which are fed into animation software. This forms the foundations of analytic animations, a logical extension of analytic geometry.
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.
View3D is a program to calculate radiation view factors, as used in radiant heat transfer problems in mechanical engineering, building design, furnace design, etc. Data input is via text file. There are 3D and 2D viewers for checking your input. View factors are output to another file for use with other calculation tools. View factors are also sometimes called "shape factors", "configuration factors", and "form factors".
