Today, I am going to show you how to use Gmsh to build the plate with a hole model and how to simulate that model with Code_Aster.
This tutorial will teach a lot of useful things such as creating the groups of nodes and elements, choosing the right mesh format for Code_Aster, Building the export file to run the simulation and post-process the results.
Here’s the video:

Gmsh is an open source 3D finite element mesh generator with a built-in CAD engine and post-processor. Its design goal is to provide a fast, light and user-friendly meshing tool with parametric input and advanced visualization capabilities. Gmsh is built around four modules: geometry, mesh, solver and post-processing.
