neBEM - near Boundary Element Method

Computes the electric field and potential in nearly arbitrary 3-dimensional geometries taking the presence of conductors and dielectric media into account: http://nebem.web.cern.ch/nebem/ Alternative to a Finite Element Method (FEM) tool like ANSYS where the Maxwell equations can't be solved in a strict mathematical way.

ANSYS

Garfield/Garfield++

http://garfield.web.cern.ch/garfield/ and http://garfieldpp.web.cern.ch/garfieldpp/

Magboltz

Calculates gas properties: http://magboltz.web.cern.ch/magboltz/

GEANT4

Simulates particle interactions in a detector (with custom geometry and materials): http://geant4.web.cern.ch/

NEST - Noble Element Simulation Technique

Addition to GEANT4 to correct calculations on interactions in noble gases (also in liquid phase), especially at low energies: http://nest.physics.ucdavis.edu/site/
