These new features represent an overdue step towards making Energy2D a versatile multiphysics simulation system. For engineering simulations, multiphysics is essential as real-world problems are often complicated by more than one mechanisms, each driven by its own physics.
The particle dynamics shown here is very simple (just a weekend's work). In the long run, I expect that a generic contact dynamics engine such as that of Box2D will be implemented in Energy2D. Coupling the Eulerian and Lagrangian reference frames, this integration will make Energy2D more interesting and useful. That would be a critical step towards our goal for Energy2D to simulate as many energy-related natural phenomena as possible.
