Impact is a complete CAD/finite element suite which simulates dynamic events, often involving large deformations or high velocities. Simulations are made on a virtual 3D model which can be created with a pre-processor. The latest release uses JoGL to provide OpenGL API bindings on Windows, Linux and OS X (additional platforms are supported by extensions). The OpenGL API support allows models larger than 50,000 elements to be comfortably edited and provides a significant step in graphics performance. Impact is written in Java and is released as Open Source.
