The FLAMES Engine is a set of applications (executable programs) that allow you to create, execute, visualize, and control FLAMES® scenarios. When they start, these applications dynamically load any specified set of FLAMES component plugins to allow you to simulate almost any system in almost any scenario imaginable.
Component plugins are required to create scenarios and are not included with the FLAMES Engine. Several plugins are included in the content available in the FLAMES Store. You can also develop your own plugins using the FLAMES Developer.
