Code Aster Introduction, 11./12.03.2019

Reserve seats…


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.
