SPlisHSPlasH

SPlisHSPlasH is an open-source library for the physically-based simulation of fluids. The simulation in this library is based on the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method which is a popular meshless Lagrangian approach to simulate complex fluid effects. The SPH formalism allows an efficient computation of a certain quantity of a fluid particle by considering only a finite set of neighboring particles. One of the most important research topics in the field of SPH methods is the simulation of incompressible fluids. SPlisHSPlasH implements current state-of-the-art pressure solvers (WCSPH, PCISPH, PBF, IISPH, DFSPH) to simulate incompressibility. Moreover, the library provides different methods to simulate viscosity and surface tension.

PositionBasedDynamics

This library supports the physically-based simulation of mechanical effects. In the last years position-based simulation methods have become popular in the graphics community. In contrast to classical simulation approaches these methods compute the position changes in each simulation step directly, based on the solution of a quasi-static problem. Therefore, position-based approaches are fast, stable and controllable which make them well-suited for use in interactive environments. However, these methods are generally not as accurate as force-based methods but still provide visual plausibility. Hence, the main application areas of position-based simulation are virtual reality, computer games and special effects in movies and commercials.

Tex & Paste

Tex&Paste is a small tool which translates your Latex code to generate an image in the clipboard. This means you can directly paste the resulting image in applications like Powerpoint, CorelDraw or Illustrator. Tex&Paste enables you to add Latex equations or symbols in any application that can handle images easily. The tool is based on ScintillaNET and supports syntax highlighting, code snippets etc.

IBDS - physics library

IBDS is a library for dynamic simulation of multi-body systems in C++. The library simulates rigid bodies, particles, many different joint types and collisions with dynamic and static friction. The library is open source under the zlib license. So it is free for commercial use.
