Presentation of Code Aster
   Introduction
 
Code_Aster is an open-source software  for  thermo- mechanical analysis of structures. It is developed by EDF to meet its internal needs of  studies and is broadcast on code-aster.org. You will find on the website the sources of the software, updates, a full documentation, news and a forum with very dynamic users.
   Expertise code
 
Code_Aster is a very powerful simulation software as well as computation time than accuracy. Compared to major commercial codes (Nastran, Ansys, Samcef, Radioss... )  one  can say that it is a code of expertise that offers huge possibilities to the user in the model definition , laws materials or calculations to be performed. Learning is less intuitive (or less guided ) than commercial codes. That is why Tangent'delta built training modules for the use of Code_Aster.

 
 
   SalomeMeca
 
Code_Aster is directly interfaced with the pre and post- processor Salome within the SalomeMeca platform. This allows you to call the solver from Salome . Wizards are even offered to perform simple calculations of static analysis, eigenmodes and specific heat. So, SalomeMeca contains all the tools needed for finite element analysis.
 
   ProNet network
 
A professional network was formed in 2011 on the initiative of EDF .  The  Code_Aster Professional Network currently includes major industrial companies , laboratories, universities, SMEs and service providers. Tangent'delta is an active member of  the  ProNet network since its foundation. Do not hesitate to join us!
