In this paper a free web simulation environment is presented: UN-VirtualLab . It is a virtual laboratory in which users can perform experiments on precompiled software models. UN-VirtualLab uses OpenModelica in order to compile software models written in Modelica language. The main features and internal architecture of the system is presented. Some potential applications are discussed.

Keywords: Simulation environments; web applications; OpenModelica; education
