3DSSPP 3D SSPP software predicts static strength requirements for tasks such as lifts, presses, pushes, and pulls. The program provides an approximate job simulation that includes posture data, force parameters and male/ female anthropometry. Output includes the percentage of men and women who have the strength to perform the described job, spinal compression forces, and data comparisons to NIOSH guidelines. The user can analyze torso twists and bends and make complex hand force entries. Analysis is aided by an automatic posture generation feature and three dimensional human graphic illustrations.

Decision Tools Suite @RISK is an add-in to Microsoft Excel that lets you analyze risk using Monte Carlo simulation. @RISK shows you virtually all possible outcomes for any situation—and tells you how likely they are to occur. This means you can judge which risks to take on and which ones to avoid—critical insight in today’s uncertain world. PrecisionTree helps address complex, sequential decisions by visually mapping out, organizing, and analyzing decisions using decision trees – right in Microsoft Excel. Decision trees are quantitative diagrams with nodes and branches representing different possible decision paths and chance events. This helps you identify and calculate the value of all possible alternatives, so you can choose the best option with confidence.

EES EES (pronounced 'ease') is a general equation-solving program that can numerically solve thousands of coupled non-linear algebraic and differential equations. The program can also be used to solve differential and integral equations, do optimization, provide uncertainty analyses, perform linear and non-linear regression, convert units, check unit consistency, and generate publication-quality plots. A major feature of EES is the high accuracy thermodynamic and transport property database that is provided for hundreds of substances in a manner that allows it to be used with the equation solving capability.

GNU Octave GNU Octave is software featuring a high-level programming language, primarily intended for numerical computations. Octave helps in solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with MATLAB. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language. Since it is part of the GNU Project, it is free software under the terms of the GNU General Public License. Octave is one of the major free alternatives to MATLAB, others being Scilab and FreeMat. Scilab, however, puts less emphasis on (bidirectional) syntactic compatibility with MATLAB than Octave does

JAVA Java is a general-purpose programming language that is class-based, object-oriented, and designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers write once, run anywhere (WORA), meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation. Java applications are typically compiled to bytecode that can run on any Java virtual machine (JVM) regardless of the underlying computer architecture.

MCNP6 Monte Carlo N-Particle Transport (MCNP)[2] is a general-purpose, continuous-energy, generalized-geometry, time-dependent, Monte Carlo radiation transport code designed to track many particle types over broad ranges of energies and is developed by Los Alamos National Laboratory. Specific areas of application include, but are not limited to, radiation protection and dosimetry, radiation shielding, radiography, medical physics, nuclear criticality safety, detector design and analysis, nuclear oil well logging, accelerator target design, fission and fusion reactor design, decontamination and decommissioning. The code treats an arbitrary three-dimensional configuration of materials in geometric cells bounded by first- and second-degree surfaces and fourth-degree elliptical tori.

Open MC OpenMC is an open source Monte Carlo particle transport code focused on reactor modeling and reactor physics methods research. It is a community-developed code with contributors from many institutions. OpenMC is designed with flexibility and usability in mind. It simplifies the process of simulating complex reactor systems and analyzing their output datasets. Inputs for OpenMC are generated through a Python API. Using Python rather than traditional text input files allows users to more easily automate the input generation process. The Python API also provides powerful post-processing tools and gives users the ability to quickly analyze their MC data with the many software libraries available in the Python ecosystem. OpenMC also features a C API (which can be accessed through Python). This API makes it easier to integrate OpenMC into a coupled solver with efficient in-memory data transfers.

Systems Took Kit STK Systems Tool Kit (formerly Satellite Tool Kit), often referred to by its initials STK, is a physics-based software package from Analytical Graphics, Inc. that allows engineers and scientists to perform complex analyses of ground, sea, air, and space assets, and share results in one integrated solution. At the core of STK is a geometry engine for determining the time-dynamic position and attitude of assets, and the spatial relationships among the objects under consideration including their relationships or accesses given a number of complex, simultaneous constraining conditions.

TSMC libraries These libraries are free of charge and can be downloaded from TSMC's library distribution partners, Cadence Design Systems, Synopsys, Inc., Artisan, and Virage Logic. They provide easy, no-hassle integration, maximum cost savings, faster time to market and, ultimately, faster time-to-revenue. TSMC's high-density libraries and unique circuit under pad (CUP) I/Os allow designers to build functionality in the smallest possible chip area
