Code-Aster/Salomé-Meca course

 11 May, 2015

CloudPYME project organizes “Code-Aster/Salomé-Meca Course”, on june 9-11.

  • Salomé: is a free software for pre and post-processing for numerical simulation.  It is based on an open and flexible architecture made of reusable components.
  • Code_Aster: is a software for finite element analysis and numerical simulation in structural mechanics and multiphysics. Code Aster is a solver or processing engine that does not include pre and post-processing. Its functions may cover various fields such as 3D mechanical and thermal analyses, mainly, but also hydrodynamics, metallurgy, hydration, drying… in linear and non-linear statics and dynamics. In addition, Code_Aster counts with different tools to deal with issues related to fatigue, damage, fracture, contact, geomaterials, porous media, multi-physics coupling.
