Software used:

(Updated along with the latest tutorial - some tutorials might need tweaks to work with later versions)

  • 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 Code Aster® so use these files only as an example of the file structure/the Code Aster® way of thinking.

Piston tutorial
