The objectives of the PicUp3D project are to:
- create a library of numerical routines to perform spacecraft plasma interactions simulations in 3D ;
- provide this library free of charge to all potentially interested plasma modellers;
- maintain and update the code via feedback from the users and a community of developers.
To reach these objectives, the PicUp3D library is based on a full 3D PIC particle model, written in the object-oriented Java language. It will be released progressively as an open source software under GPL license.
PicUp3D is mainly developed for scientific and academic applications and is not maintained anymore. Please refer to the Archives Web site for further information.
