SCICOS, Dynamic System Builder and Simulator
``a simulation environment in which both continuous systems and discrete systems co-exist. ... The objective of the development of Scicos is along the lines of that of Scilab, that is to provide the scientific community with a a completely open and free environment for scientific computing.''

The M Modelling and Visualization Environment ( download)
``M is an integrated environment for the development, visualization and application of simulations of dynamic systems. M comprises a mathematical formalism, a simulator that solves the equations and handles data management and a graphical interface to define input scenarios, to inspect model results and to document and present the model itself. Without any programming, large simulations with easy-to-use graphical interfaces can be built.''
