Software for RISC OS

scientific

The software listed here was among that on discs of freeware scientific software, originally offered to subscribers to Archive magazine.

All the files are archives, produced using David Pillings SparkFS, and may be extracted using SparkPlug, Spark, or SparkFS.


Molecular modeller demo

To all chemists - here is a demo version of a molecular drawing program. To learn how to use it, you can get interactive help messages by running the RISC OS !Help Application. Some simple molecule data files (file type &3FF) are included for people to play with.

For a much enhanced version contact Rod Ferguson. The enhanced version will interface with other programs, including acting as a front end for the Allinger Molecular Mechanics program 'MM2', and can also output to a ray tracing program for full rendering of space filled models.

Contact Rod also if you have any interest in a RISC OS version of either the MM2 program or the MINDO3 semi-empirical program for molecular structure determination.

You may download the following files, which are all zip archives.


Institute of metals

The !IoM application was converted from the Institute of Materials 'Schools Disc' originally distributed free to secondary schools by the Institute. The software remains copyright K.M.Crennell and the Institute of Materials. It may be freely copied for educational purposes provided that all files are included unaltered.

You may download the following files, which are all zip archives.


Sphere rotate

Sphererot is a demo program illustrating the use of sprite routines from the PD_F77 library to manipulate objects made up of collections of spheres.

WimpPoly

WimpPoly is a demonstration of the use of the Desktop from Fortran using the "Fortran Friends" PD_F77 library. WimpPoly plots two views of a polyhedron, a 3D solid and a planar net, from over 140 data files mostly downloaded from 'netlib' on the Joint Academic network.

Physics demos

These programs were originally written to demonstrate some of the concepts in the undergraduate lecture courses given in the Physics Department in Glasgow University. They are being distributed in the hope that they will be equally useful to other educational establishments. The applications are freeware. They may be spread freely with all files (including the plug for Glasgow University) intact. They may not be used or distributed for profit and no responsibility is taken for any damage to files (of course).

You may download the following files, which are all zip archives.


Molecular modeller

This demonstration version of the Molecular Modeller (Arachne Software) may be freely copied and distributed providing the complete set of files including all documentation files is copied and is not altered in any way whatsoever. No part of this package may be distributed on its own or incorporated in any other software package or other product. A charge may not be made for this software other than distribution/media costs.

You may download the following files, which are all zip archives.


Mole

Mole (by Simon Kilvington) is a program to edit and display molecular models, these may then be saved as Sprite or Draw files, or rendered to give a more realistic 3D image which can then be saved as a sprite.

You may download the following files, which are all zip archives.
