Here I've collected and uploaded a series of cases and code-snippets that some might find useful.

I consider this an online notebook of my Code Aster® endeavours and I'll try to keep it updated with the experiments I do.

  • Thanks to everyone who helped me, and who's *.comm file I've taken stuff from - too many to write here :)

Small snippets from various cases, tricks and other neat stuff - can be copy/pasted


  • Extracting max/min principal stress of a model
  • Extracting node reactions and forces
  • Create a table of the principal stresses from each node
  • Creating a node group from the entire model

Full cases

Here I have uploaded some cases that are up to date with Code Aster® 9.4 (C_A) along with *.astk, *.comm, mesh-files, *.hdf etc. etc. They should be usable 'as is'.

The point of these are that I've struggled much with the now out-dated examples (they are still valid, but wont run in later Code_Aster without much editing) and want to provide an easy way of copy/paste for newer users of Code Aster®.



  • Linear statics of an H-beam
  • Converting a mesh from linear to quadratic (2nd order) and projecting the result onto a linear mesh
  • Outputting to Ensight format
  • Non-linear plasticity study
  • Contact
