In this post we will see how to model hyperelasticity in a large deformation problem. This case is taken from a publicy available example on the internet, but the original source is probably this one, for all due credit. To read this article one will need some knowledge both in Nastran and in Code_Aster. Large scale deformation of a … Continue reading Nastran to Code_Aster: hyperelasticity

# Quantum Mechanics simulation using Finite Elements

This post is about an unusual kind of simulation using Code_Aster: a quantum mechanics system. In this case we will try to calculate the probability of finding the electron somewhere in a hydrogen atom. This means that we need to find the wave function of the electron in a potential field, by solving this problem … Continue reading Quantum Mechanics simulation using Finite Elements

# Altair HyperMesh to Code_Aster: exporting mesh

This post is about how to export a Code_Aster compatible mesh from a widely used professional pre-processor: Altair HyperMesh™. To read this article one will need some knowledge both in HyperMesh™ and in Code_Aster. Special thanks to: Dr. Enrico Bertocchi from "Enzo Ferrari" department at Unimore University for his precious help with the HyperMesh™ interface and testing the … Continue reading Altair HyperMesh to Code_Aster: exporting mesh

# Nastran to Code_Aster: automatic translation

This is a very short post to describe a tool that can be used for automatic translation between Nastran and Code_Aster: the Vega translator. It is available as a command line program in our Download section, feel free to give it a try! Its usage is quite straightforward, you simply have to unzip the archive, enter in … Continue reading Nastran to Code_Aster: automatic translation

# Nastran to Code_Aster: slideline contact

In this post we will have a look at a slideline contact problem, including friction. This case is taken from a publicy available example on the internet, but the original source is probably this one, for all due credit. To read this article one will need some knowledge both in Nastran and in Code_Aster. The translation between Nastran and … Continue reading Nastran to Code_Aster: slideline contact

# Nastran to Code_Aster: modal frequency response

In this post we will have a look at a modal frequency response analysis. We will find the frequency response of the structure under a pressure load and a nodal force with a phase lag. A modal damping is also applied. This case is taken from a publicy available example on the internet, but the original … Continue reading Nastran to Code_Aster: modal frequency response

# Salome-Meca 2017: AsterStudy module

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 … Continue reading Salome-Meca 2017: AsterStudy module

# Nastran to Code_Aster : normal modes

In this post we will have a look at a simple linear modal analysis. This case is taken from a publicy available example on the internet, but the original source is probably this one, for all due credit. To read this article one will need some knowledge both in Nastran and in Code_Aster. The translation between Nastran and Code_Aster … Continue reading Nastran to Code_Aster : normal modes
