Software used:

(Updated along with the latest tutorial)

  • Ubuntu 10.04 64bit
  • Salomé 5.1.5 for preparing the geometry, meshing and post-processing.
  • Code_Aster 10.3 64bit, compiled with the Intel compiler for calculation

Computer used:

  • Dual core Intel 2.9GHz with 4Gb of RAM

I have tried to comment the *.comm files as well as I could, but I am far from an expert on C_A so use these files only as an example of the file structure/the C_A way of thinking.

Piston tutorial


I have updated the original piston tutorial also found on this wiki, to comply with SaloméMECA 2010.2 - A great introduction for absolute beginners to SaloméMECA and Code_Aster

Tutorial in PDF format - Updated for SaloméMECA 2010.2 Media:Piston_tutorial.pdf

Applying Torque and using parameters

This case deals with applying torque to an object in a non-linear calculation and using parameters to control the calculation.

  • Using parameters
  • Non-linear calculation
  • Creating an animated GIF file of the result.

Using the command LIAISON_ELEM

Apply the command LIAISON_ELEM using beams to substitute 3D geometry to reduce the work load of a calculation and simplify geometry
