SimSOM is a multi-physics simulator, coded by me from scratch. It is capable of simulating different states of matter, like liquids, fluids, semi-fluids, granular materials, soft bodies, cloth, solids, sticky materials, and best of all it allows interactions and even switching between different types of materials, it supports moving and deforming geometry and many other features.
