Car Dynamics Engine

Fully physics-based engine simulating car dynamics, which worked in real-time. It was also implemented as a plugin for 3D Studio Max for rendering the simulated kinematics. It was developed in C++ and Visual Studio. It uses exact physics law, friction forces, inertial systems, and more.

Multiple Pendulum Simulation

Pure physics engine simulating multiple pendulums (chains) in real-time. It was implemented by the real physics law, pure Newton's laws. The graphics was very basic. The interaction with the user was to define the starting position of the pendulum(s), and then the simulation would take over the processing of the dynamics and kinematics.
