Mimics is useful for visualization and segmentation of CT / MR images and 3D rendering of objects. It also provides an interface to create FEM meshes. MSI currently has the following modules Mimics basic - Allows segmentation, registration and measurement on 3D object STL+ - Allows creation of 3D object for rapid prototyping FEM - Add material property, create FEM mesh and export files to standard FEM packages
FLUENT uses a finite volume numerical procedure to solve the differential equations governing fluid flow, as well as conservation of energy and chemical species therein. Both compressible and incompressible flows can be modeled, as can turbulence by way of the k-e turbulence model.
Comsol Multiphysics (formerly known as FEMLAB) is a Multiphysics modeling tool that solves all types of problems based on Finite Element Analysis and Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). Predefined applications modes include stress/strain, heat transfer, CFD, and electromagnetics. Additonal features of Comsol Multiphysics include specialized add-on modules for chemical Engineering, Structural Mechanics and Electromagnetics. MSI currently has both education and research licenses. The educational license is COMSOL version 4.1.
LAMMPS (Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator) is a software suite for classical molecular dynamics simulations developed and maintained by Sandia National Labs.
ANSYS is a general-purpose finite-element program for engineering analysis, and includes preprocessing, solution, and postprocessing functions. ANSYS is used in a wide range of disciplines for solutions to mechanical, thermal, and electronic problems. There are versions of ANSYS software for both UNIX-based and Windows operating systems.
