With the latest release (available in the Download section) of Salome-Meca 2017 for Windows it is possible to graphically realize a finite element calculation using Code_Aster as a solver and Salome as both as a preprocessor and postprocessor.
While this is still a preliminary work, is it a big step forward in the Code_Aster usage and diffusion in the community.
A description of the new paradigm can be found in this article which includes a video tutorial going from the geometry construction to the result visualization.
The study can be described visually, without writing any special syntax. The underling Code_Aster syntax is still accessible (as one can see in the Information area in the lower left part of the screen):
Boundary conditions and materials can be affected on mesh groups and a preview of the corresponding mesh part is visible:
Code_Aster execution is also automated and its progress (or previous executions) can be monitored by a workflow-like interface:
Results are automatically made available in the Paravis module, in this case a thermal analysis of a pipe structure:

I love how you have made Salome Meca available for windows. Is it possible to update the installer with the latest version of Salome-Meca 2017.0.2? There seems to be some bugs in the Code Aster study for the SM 17.0.0 version that has been fixed in the latest version.
The version already contains Salome-Meca 2017.0.2 correction. Some minor issues may be solved in next release
It is awesome to have salome-meca runing on windows!
In many companies ( including mine) we have Windows OS and some softwares that only run on windows, so we have to run salome- meca on virtual machine. But not any more! Thanks.
You’re welcome! Thank you very much for your comment, it is very appreciated 🙂
