Meshing and Post-processing with SALOME Course (beginners level)

SALOME online course. The content of the course is 25 hours, and the maximum time to complete it is 4 weeks. At the end of the course an aptitude certificate will be issued to the students.

This course includes manuals and exercises. Our website has chat, forums, remote desktop connection, video conferencing, internal mail, etc. The teacher, Javi Moreiras, has an extensive experience in CAD 3D, CAE and SALOME.

SALOME is an open source available at both for Windows and Linux. SALOME includes tools for pre-processing and post-processing numerical simulations.

Duration: 25 hours, ONLINE
Start date: Consult:
Max time: 4 weeks
Price: 200 €
Aimed at:

This course is aimed at people who are interested in the open source SALOME to support a numerical simulation.


The purpose of this course is to acquire the knowledge and practical skills necessary to employ SALOME. Students will learn to create a CAD 3D design, elaborate a meshe and post-process CFD and numerical simulations.

Description of SALOME:

SALOME is an open-source software that provides pre-processing and post-processing tools for CFD and numerical simulations. It includes applications to generate CAD 3D models and meshes. It allows to create, modify and import/export several formats such as IGES, STEP, BREP etc. It also allows to mesh CAD models, edit meshes, check mesh qualities and import/export meshes in several formats. As post-processor, SALOME includes tools to display CFD and numerical simulations results.
