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 need to switch among preprocessors, solvers, and postprocessors in order to perform typical 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.
Energy2D is developed under the Institute for Future Intelligence and main funding is from the US National Science Foundation. Earlier versions were developed under The Concord Consortium with a permissive MIT license.
Energy2D can be used in place of the proprietary HEAT2D.
- There is a known issue running the latest GNU Java version on Fedora missing libawt_xawt.so. The same version runs fine on Windows (10).
- If you're having trouble with the installer on other platforms try the installers from The Concord Consortium.
- See the categories for this article
- There is a rather old channel with energy2d on Youtube tutorials
- Charles Xie has videos about Energy2D on his Youtube channel. Charlie Xie is the developer of Energy2D.
