IRBEM-LIB provides routines to compute magnetic coordinates for any location in the Earth's magnetic field, to perform coordinate conversions, to evaluate geophysics/space-physics models, and to propagate orbits in time.
This library is a Fortran 95 gnuplot interface for some Unix like OS'es. This provides some routines that enables direct access of a child gnuplot session from a Fortran 95 program. You will need a copy of fortranposix to make this work.
DISCUS is a set of programs to simulate the atomic structure of disordered materials and calculate experimental properties such as diffuse scattering or the atomic pair distribution function.
Simulation of EPR spectra of nitroxide biradicals
The program Orthos is developed to performed simulation (including nonlinear least-squares fitting) of EPR spectra of nitroxide biradicals. The program capabilities include simulation of rigid-limit and slow-motional spectra, of both isotropic and aligned samples. The spectra of multiple paramagnetic species, both bi- and monoradicals can be modeled. NB: Please note that now (as of Nov 2016) the distribution is being updated so that to improve reliability, OS-universality, and the quality of documentation. If you have any troubles installing/compiling/using the software, please contact me. I would be glad to help.
Airfoil optimization with Xfoil
Airfoil optimization using the highly-regarded Xfoil engine for aerodynamic calculations. Starting with a seed airfoil, Xoptfoil uses particle swarm, genetic algorithm and direct search methodologies to perturb the geometry and maximize performance. The user selects a number of operating points over which to optimize, desired constraints, and the optimizer does the rest.
COmputational fluid dyNamics STRUctured grid CreaTor for 2D airfoils
Construct2D is a grid generator designed to create 2D grids for CFD computations on airfoils. The grids are generated in Plot3D format. The only required input file is the set of coordinates defining the airfoil geometry, using the same format as XFoil, the popular vortex-panel code for airfoil analysis. Construct2D can create grids with O topology (recommended for airfoils with a blunt trailing edge) or C topology (recommended for airfoils with a sharp trailing edge). Now available in version 2.0: hyperbolic grid generation to create higher quality grids in a fraction of the time compared to elliptic grid generation. Elliptic grid generation is still available also. Smooth airfoil surface spacing is handled automatically with user-controlled clustering parameters. Also included is a visualizer written in Python with matplotlib.

Parallel coupled multiphysics simulation application
Rocstar is a multiphysics simulation application designed to do fluid-structure interaction (FSI) across moving, reacting interfaces. Rocstar couples multiple domain-specific simulation packages and disparately discretized domains and provides several simulation-supporting services including conservative and accurate data transfer, surface propagation, and parallel I/O. Rocstar is MPI parallel and routinely executes large simulations on massively parallel platforms. Rocstar was originally developed at the University of Illinois Center for Simulation of Advanced Rockets (CSAR) under Department of Energy ASCI funding. Ongoing development of Rocstar is conducted by Illinois Rocstar LLC with company IR&D and continued DOE SBIR funding.
Data Processing and Analysis for X-ray Spectroscopy and More
Larch is a scientific data processing language that is designed to be easy to use for novices and complete enough for advanced data processing and analysis. Larch provides a wide range of functionality for dealing with arrays of scientific data, and basic tools to make it easy to use and organize complex data. Larch has been primarily developed for dealing with x-ray spectroscopic and scattering data, especially the kind of data collected at modern synchrotrons and x-ray sources. Larch is written in Python and relies heavily on the standard tools for scientific computing with Python (numpy, scipy, matplotlib, and h5py).
