by D. Lachène, EDF R&D / AMA

This how-to document SU1.04.01 describes the modeling of pipelines with Salome-Meca : geometry and mesh.

The elements used are: straight pipes, elbows, tees. 3D tee elements can be simply connected to the intersections of wireline.

The main Code_Aster operators specifically usefull for piping calculations are described : assignment of geometric features and connections between elements of different dimensions.
