Energy2D: Interactive Multiphysics Simulations for Everyone

Based on computational physics, Energy2D is an interactive multiphysics simulation program that models all three modes of heat transfer—conduction, convection, and radiation, and their coupling with particle dynamics. Energy2D runs quickly on most computers and eliminates the switches among preprocessors, solvers, and postprocessors typically needed to perform computational fluid dynamics simulations. It allows you to design "computational experiments" to test a scientific hypothesis or solve an engineering problem without resorting to complex mathematics.

Work is also underway to incorporate other types of energy transformations (e.g., phase changes and chemical reactions through the Stefan condition) and support multiple types of fluids (e.g., air and water).
