What is your purpose for programming?
for instance, if you want to solve the equations and get numbers as your results. I suggest you Fortran. In other case which you want to have graphical Images as your results, you can use Matlab which contain different imaging tools and analyzers.
The main thing is the problem that you want to solve not the language you want to work on.

There are many programs for simulating specific aspects of physics and engineering,
however I don't think you will find a general purpose simulator of the kind you seem to be implying.

I depends what you're doing and your priorities...

- If convenience is more important, try MATLAB or Modelica. They're reasonably straightforward to use and have much functionality. You can also use a high-level scripting language, like Python, which is my personal preference. Python is awesome. Many data scientists use R, but I find it odd.

- If performance is very important, you can't beat the older languages: FORTRAN or C++. FORTRAN is more mathematically inclined, but C++ is a little bit more modern. It's much more challenging using these languages. I tend to use C# these days, which is modern, relatively high performance and much, much easier to use.
