Modeling and simulation have become more important to the strategic success of the Laboratory, which creates more opportunities to license innovative software.
November 6, 2015

Principal investigator David Carrington (above) and his team are constantly improving the KIVA internal combustion engine modeling tool to help automotive engines be more fuel efficient. A free version of KIVA can be downloaded through FCI's Express Licensing Program.


The Richard P. Feynman Center for Innovation (FCI) releases copyright materials under different mechanisms:

  • Open Source Software: FCI encourages Los Alamos authors to post on the GitHub platform to facilitate transfer of open source software.  All open source software available through the Laboratory is listed below.
  • Executable Downloads: FCI deploys “lite” versions of software users can download with a single click. These downloads are more basic versions designed to provide users with a trial of the software. Selected executable software is available as proprietary source code that can be licensed for a fee.
  • Applications: Los Alamos has posted several “apps” on Google Play and the App Store (requires iTunes). These include a space weather application called DREAM and the LANL 70th Anniversary application. Several other “Apps” are being developed for free download.

For more information regarding how to access software from Los Alamos, contact the software team at (505) 665-9090 or
