Any physics simulation software?

  1. May 6, 2013 #1
    Is there any software for simulating physical phenomena?
    I've googled it and found one named Physion.
    It is great for fun but is too limited.
    Would programming be the only way or is there some ready-made program that could provide an easy environment to develop simulations.

    OpenModelica? I have not used it, but just read up on it and seems very powerful for modeling systems...you can simply type the modeling equations for your components and then connect the excitation/forcing function on one end and plot your results on the other...may have a pretty steep learning curve.
