Spheral++ provides a steerable parallel environment for performing coupled hydrodynamical & gravitational numerical simulations. Hydrodynamics and gravity are modelled using particle based methods (SPH and N-Body).
Galaxy extraterrestrial life simulation
EtiC is a galaxy simulation software that generates and renders a mock galaxy for rational estimation of the number of extraterrestrial civilizations. Stars and planets are simulated with plausible physical characteristics, based on user-adjustable parameters. An EtiC simulation run consists to generate a galaxy disk physical stars, associate planets to the stars, and for habitable planets, simulate the life stages evolution until extinction. A visual animation of the galaxy and user selection of highlighted star-planet objects is provided, together with statistics (25+ graphs) and estimates of Drake equation factors. The V2_1 provides several new features: planets surface magnetic field, reworked life stage transitions, integration of MW exoplanets catalog, planets view and graphs window optionally on different threads... EtiC is based on OpenGL / GLFW 3.2, runs on MSWindows 7 and MacOsX. Source code in C++, was developped using the Dev-C++ IDE and XCode.
Image stacking software for Unix/Linux, primarily for Astrophotography
Simple image stacking software for Unix/Linux, primarily for Astrophotography. Written in GTKMM (C++). Note: Currently being planned/implemented; not final working software yet.
A neutral hydrogen galaxy modeling and fitting tool
Galactus is a new astronomical modeling package. The aim is to model and fit datacubes from radio synthesis telescopes. Galactus is the only HI tool which can predict the HI (self-)absorption.
MISS is a software simulation of the control room of the International Space Station. It is intended to be both entertaining and educational, aimed at high school students. Various pre-configured and random events encourage interaction and groupwork.
Software to control a remote telescope via a web interface. Includes software needed to operate a motorized dome, telescope, and cameras.This project has been partially funded by a grant from the Northwest Academic Computing Consortium.
Technological demo of OpenGL ES 2 Android NDK
Technological demo of OpenGL ES 2 for Android platform. It reads public NORAD satellite database and shows the satellite positions and altitude related to Earth in the form of beams (the height of the beam represents the relative altitude). NOTE: The project has been moved to GitHub: https://github.com/nuald/glSatellite-Demo The old one stays here just for the historical reasons. The 3D features present: - OpenGL ES 2; - rotating, multi-touch zooming and moving the globe; - stars on a fixed background; - each satellite is represented by a beam with a unique color; - identifying the corresponding satellite if a beam has been tapped (based on color picking method). Additionally to 3D features presented the application is: - using NDK with C++11 features compiled by LLVM clang; - mixing Java views with OpenGL views (Java is used for settings activity, information and ads panels); - using Android custom message queue to send asynchronous messages from Java to JNI
