Re: Beginning with code_aster second edition

Wow! That great jeanpierreaubry.

In next version perhaps we need to add/remove:
a) explanation of file system used (the input and output files is mysterious)
b) Add more of salome meca and paraview as these are also part of code-aster package
c) Does ASTK needs to be included? In newer version of code-aster it seems not in focus.

Great news Jean Pierre,

The first edition is still on my table :-)

a) what do you need to know? I think that file system is quite clear.
b) salome-meca and paraview is not part of code-aster. The code-aster and modified paraview are parts of salome-meca package
c) ASTK is still important part of code-aster and also salome-meca.

I have been using the code-aster from 2010 and I am still convinced that every new user should start with ASTK to understand the way how the code-aster works.

Re: Beginning with code_aster second edition

Hi Mecour,
Thanks for sharing your experience. 

Let me share mine.

I am new to code aster (I am using it since 2018), though i have been using commercial FEA (such as SAP, Staad, ansys) for quite a while.  When I started code-aster - I downloaded it as Salome-Meca package which includes code-aster, geometry, mesh, (modified) para view, etc inside it. In my view this is very logical because as an end user, we want geometry, meshing, analysis and post-processing to be within a single package.

Since I downloaded the package, I have not used ASTK even once- perhaps due to my ignorance or perhaps it was not necessary for my analysis. I use GUI interface most of the time but to share with other people, I export the command file and mesh files. When i need to import these files again, I have respecify all the input files (mesh file) and output files again.  Its annoying. Again, this may be due to my lack of knowledge.

Thus, in my opinion such basic stuffs should be included in the beginners book. It will be very helpful.

Thanks.

thanks for your return
a) a little more practice will probably solve that misunderstanding
b) i will not do that! i explain why in chapter "Introduction"
c) ASTK is my advised way of running a study, so much powerful

may i add that when you have run a code_aster study with ASTK an text editing the .comm file [and a GMSH meshing] you stand a fairly large chance of feeling a little bit smarter than at the start

Re: Beginning with code_aster second edition

Thanks a lot. I was getting closer to code_aster and now with the new version of the book I will go deeper into it. I come from Solidworks simulation (static analysis only) and I must say that until now code_aster holds up the comparison. Solidworks is graphically more pleasing but has some limitations and obviously has an expansion cost for dynamic analysis, buckling etc. etc.

I'm glad you kept the setup with the .comm file that I find more flexible and more likely to change the project than the way Solidworks works.
Aster study is for those who are not used to the codes and in any case, on a par with Solidoworks, it is not good for editing projects and every time everything needs to be set up again. Aster study offers the possibility to export the .comm that I use useful.
Thanks again
