OrCad Capture I have used OrCad a fair bit. I use it for university, it is part of many of my units. The demo is free and is fully featured but "Limitations are in the size and complexity of the design." I have not had any trouble with hitting these limits when I have been using the free version. It has a large collection of libraries. NTC resistor can be ...

LTspice is another alternative, similar to the other answers here. It has a small, steep learning curve, but after a few hours you should have no problem to simulate simple circuits. You can do DC, AC, transient analysis etc.. and offers a library with a good variety of basic components. Below are two screenshots from my installation on OSX, but it shouldn'...

I would definitely check out this guide, Open-Source Network Simulators. They all run on either Linux or BSD. The simulators included in the guide are, Cloonix CORE GNS3 IMUNES Marionnet Mininet Netkit Psimulator2 Virtualsquare VNX and VNUML

You can do that via Paypal Developer Tools. Specifically with a Sandbox Test Account and the paypal API. It will be from your end the same as a real paypal credit card transaction. I haven't used it with Java so I can't comment on any specific tricks to make it work best for that. If after reading those docs you get stuck at all I'd suggest asking a ...

I would suggest taking a look at the blender physics engine - specifically look for convex hull simulations. It is free and should allow you to do the sort of visualisations that you are looking for, The only down side is the steep learning curve but it is well worth the effort.

http://edgcm.columbia.edu/support2/faq/ EdGCM provides a research-grade Global Climate Model (GCM) with a user-friendly interface that can be run on a desktop computer. For the first time, students can explore the subject of climate change in the same way that actual research scientists do. In the process of using EdGCM, students will become ...

There is also selenium which is specifically designed for web testing.

I think you are looking for Sikuli. This tool will run at the first level to simulate a real user, whether on a webpage or a desktop application. I don't have a first user experience with this tool But in my previous company they have seriously considered it as the main testing tool for one of the projects and saw my colleges working on it. It seems it ...

Netkit is the best suited tool for your opensource tool. http://wiki.netkit.org/index.php/Main_Page Netkit is an environment for setting up and performing networking experiments at low cost and with little effort. It allows to "create" several virtual network devices (full-fledged routers, switches, computers, etc.) that can be easily interconnected in ...

The one that I know is Aimsun, which is defined as a traffic modelling software that allows you to model anything from a single bus lane to an entire region. It's a professional tool and I'm pretty sure it can do what you need. There's also an Aimsun page on Wikipedia: Aimsun software is used by government agencies, municipalities, universities and ...

This was made possible by 2003 studies. The first paper includes some pictures. I couldn't find an avaible piece of software making use of this. The relevant algorithm seems to be SMARDDA. Havn't found any graphic/publicly avaible implementation, so to my (informed) opinion this question has today no relevant answer. I'ld love to be proved wrong.

There is pyTectnonics which should let you do your modelling for the plates and there are several python based hydrology GIS systems about you could possibly integrate them with the Blender Physics engine. Able to model plate tectonics for non-earth worlds Ditto hydrology 3D view via blender Free & Open Source Cross platform.

Yenka: cross-platform covers mathematics, science, computing and technology 3D models from components already available it is free for home use see Technology - Gears for what you need (an example)

After using sketch up for a while I realized It does not offer the freedom I needed,such that to be able to properly view the inside of a building you have to cut out one wall. I found another program though, Sweet Home 3d which has the capability of staging virtual visit as well as drawing on predrawn picture layouts.

You have a couple of options: If your main concern is speed and you don't care about testbench features, have a look at Verilator, which supports just the synthesizable subset of Verilog (up to the "more important features of Verilog 2005). If you need a few more testbench features, try GPL Cver, but keep in mind that it only supports Verilog 1995 (with ...

You could take a look at traditional graphing tools such as: plot.ly which does have some geographic plotting available Bokeh also allows geographic plotting Matplotlib with basemap can as well But all of the above need quite a lot of work and generally are looking to display on a global or national scale. QGIS I would suggest taking a look at QGIS which ...

You can use Proteus from Labcenter. It is commercial software but with evaluation version you can create full schematic and simulate it but you can't save it. The limitations are that it does not allow you to save, print or design your own microcontroller based designs (you can however write your own software programs to run on the existing sample design ...

This one may be a solution for you, complex in design: Algodoo It is free (the previous versions were not). It handles gears but many other automation tasks such as virtual robots and is targeted at schools. This one is easy to use since it is for teachers/students. There are videos on the site. From http://www.robotee.com/index.php/a-simple-2d-robotic-...

Recently I have been preparing myself to pass the CCIE R&S exam and I've found that combination of GNS3 and Cisco IOU is very useful and could be suffusion, also if you going through study DC you can run titanium IOV over VMWare to simulate N7K, and sure you can use the image of n1000 to simulate the n1000 virtual switch top of UCS. So it really depends ...

Although there are quite some Quadcopter kits on the market, and "how-to"s I don't think it is easy to create one from the scratch. Therefore I agree that first simulating the Quadcopter is a good start, although I am not sure until what detail you can simulate it (i.e. with the weights of the motors and rotors, etc). You can use ROS (Robot Operating System)...

There us jvisualvm which lets you monitor graphically the memory, performance and behaviour of a given JVM - since the JVM is itself a Virtual Machine it is its own best simulator. More information can be found on the developer site.

What you are looking for is software development prototyping software or "Rapid Application Development" this will allow you to quickly put together the User Interface or User eXperience UI or UX prototype to give to potential users to see if you have captured their design requirements. A lot depends on the area that you are considering are you looking at: ...

A more general tool that can do the job would be AutoHotKey. But for a simpler, more mouse-only oriented tool, you can try Auto Mouse Click Generator Both are free and both will do the job.

Download and install VirtualBox. Download a Ubuntu ISO, and install that in a VM. In your Ubuntu VM, download, install, and run Cisco Packet Tracer. It is the gold standard for teaching routing and router theory. Replace Ubuntu with Windows if you want, and have a license...

If you are looking for a visual simulation then you could use the Blender 3D Game/Physics Engine but to get the numbers, especially for stress points, to put into it you will probably need to do some Finite Element Analysis with Numpy/SfePy/FEniCS.

I'd recommend http://imunes.net/ It uses Docker for L3 nodes (Quagga in routers) and Open vSwitch for L2 nodes so basically you get "real" Linux machines connected with "real" switches. Note that it doesn't have any special support for bus or other topologies but you can use the GUI to construct those topologies.


1

Quite a steep learning curve but Blender 3D allows you to model things in 3D and includes a [physics engine][2] that allows a high degree of simulation for an example see here. Other Points: Free Gratis & Open Source Cross Platform Can be used for a lot of other things up to creating games or movies Lots of online tutorials, etc.

have you considered autoit (free of course) AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI https://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/ unfortunately requires scripting on your part forum page sample Need example of web page auto-navigation http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/55285-need-example-of-web-page-...

It may sound a bit strange but the Fire Dynamics Simulator a great tool for simulating heat and mass transfer within buildings. The fact that you won't be simulating combustion at all really just makes it easier(and faster). The is freely available, very well documented, has pretty readable code and includes visualization software. I've used this a fair ...
