MecaCell: an Open-source Efficient Cellular Physics Engine

Jean Disset, Sylvain Cussat-Blanc, and Yves Duthen

Abstract

We present an open source physics engine specialised for multi-cellular artificial organisms simulations. It is computationally efficient in comparison to gas-based and finite element models and more realistic than standard mass-spring-damper systems.
