Simulation Tools, Packages and LibrariesEdit

Add under this title the simulation tools, packages and libraries you think that may be beneficial, including the name of the specific subgroups to test. Links to github and download pages are appreciated.Possessedx (talk) 00:23, July 6, 2015 (UTC)

System ArchitectureEdit

SimulinkEdit

These are great posts that'll provide tons of insights for everyone. The authors are describing the architecture to build their simulations onto and although these are very Simulink specific, we could use their concepts behind it.

Hyperloop Model Architecture: They want your feedback

Package of Hyperloop Simulation

Matt Brauer released his Simulink model of the Hyperloop on the MATLAB Central File Exchange.

Computational Fluid Dynamics Edit

OpenFOAM Edit

An open source, free computational fluid dynamics software package that also supports thermodynamics. Pros: Powerful, free, has a large user base, and an extensive library of tutorials. Cons: Only available for Ubuntu Linux.

Mechanical Simulations Edit

Autodesk Simulation Mechanical Edit

This software package can handle any type of mechanical simulation, based on the finite element method. Pros: Very powerful, widely used in industry, easy interface, free student licenses, interfaces with Autodesks other software packages (3Ds Max, Inventor, AutoCAD, Maya, etc).

Electromagnetic Simulations Edit

MaxFEM Edit

An electromagnetic 3D simulations package based on the finite element method (FEM). Pros: Open source, multiplatform, 3D/2D solver, handles electrostatics, current, and eddy-currents and magnetostatics.

Web page: MaxFEM

FEMM Edit

An electromagnetic 2D simulations package based on the finite element method (FEM). Inferior to MaxFEM in all ways, but listed since it's free.
