Every time we want to go into something new, we’d better take a look first before “plunging” into the installation/trial phase.
As I decided to explain you how to use Open-source FEA and in particular “Code_Aster”, I made another video today to show you a bit the kind of resources you will find about it and also of course the capabilities of this code.
It’s always good to understand the kind of capabilities you will get so your won’t be surprised afterwards ;-)
In this case, it was a very positive surprise as I discovered that Code_Aster had very advanced capabilities that I always dreamt to try…
Here’s the video:
If this video actually helps you to understand better how it works, please let me know in the comments!
Please also share it with colleagues and friends if you think that can interest them.
Help me to spread the engineering knowledge :-)
Thanks again for watching and reading my blog !
Correction of few things I said in the previous article:
- Open-source software do have a license to, so you cannot do exactly everything you want with it, but at least you have the right to contribute to it
- Not every Open-source FEA is difficult to install and needs to be compiled, some actually come with a compiler (The platform Salome-Meca I talk about in this video is easier to install than the solver only)
There are changes coming to Salome-Meca. More info in presentation:
and in video:

Finally, you started with Code_Aster and I am happy to see it. I was looking forward to seeing some experienced FEA users to use the open source solvers. The 2017 version made code_aster so much user-friendly than the previous versions! I am novice user and looking forward to learning more. Thank you for the initiation!!
