Does anyone know of open-source software for modeling physics?

Asked by timothykinney (2728 points ) November 4th, 2008

Specifically, I’m interested in a Python framework that can handle Simple Harmonic Motion in multiple dimensions. I’m also willing to look at C, if a good package is known.

I’m already aware of Visual Python.

Yes. Theres quite a lot, actually.

Open Source Physics is a pretty good one. You can download it from here:
http://www.opensourcephysics.org/modeling/index.html

Wickipedia has a list of them at the bottom of the article here:
