Since the last videos I made which showed how to install a Virtual Linux Machine on your PC and install Salome Meca 2017 on top of it, a new release of Salome-Meca 2017 for Windows went out!
Good news for those who are a bit afraid to step into the linux world but still want to try out Open-source FEA.
How to install Salome Meca 2017 on Windows?
The process of installation on windows is really simple, but I decided to make a video to show you step by step how I did to run the Salome Meca 2017 on my windows 7 PC (and yes… I am still on windows 7…but don’t worry, it is suppose to work on windows 10 as well)
Here’s the video:
The process of installation is actually pretty simple and straightforward:
- Download the install file from the website code-aster-windows.com
- Unzip the file
- Open the terminal, cd into the WORK directory and run the run_salome.bat executable to launch Salome Meca 2017
And that’s it!
Still want to install it on Linux?

Now, it’s good to install Salome-Meca…but it’s even better if you understand how to use it to simulate something ;-)
And that is NOT straightforward at all, you’ll see…but with practice, nothing is impossible! (right?)
Check this article in which I show you how to model and simulate a simple plate:
I hope you enjoy those articles!
If you have something to ask or to say, please leave a comment here, I try to answer every comment
Also if you have ideas about tutorials you would like to see for example, please propose them in the comments as well. It is always useful to know what kind of model you are interested to simulate and it gives me ideas ;-)
