The training can be attended on site or online.

Online participants can participate via Google Hangouts (a Google account is required). The hangout link will be sent to you before the event begins. Training materials will be mailed to all online participants in advance in hard copy.

Contents

The Code Aster introduction training teaches to install and use Code Aster for basic tasks in Finite Element computations (FEM). After completing the course, participants can set up static linear analyses using Code Aster and/or Salome Workbench and have a thorough overview where to find informations on proceeding into advanced tasks.
