Code Aster online course

The Code-Aster course is an online course. It has 50 teaching hours to be finished in 8 weeks. At the end of the course an aptitude certificate will be issued to the students who pass the course.

The students receive manuals in pdf format, video-tutorials and solved exercises. An online platform is available 24 hours/7 days a week. The teacher has experience with Code-Aster.

The whole material (video-tutorials, exercises and texts) is available from the first day and there is no schedule. Video-tutorials are recorded. This enables each student to progress according to his learning pace.

The course structure is the following:
· 11 chapters about theory and solved exercises
· Obligatory exercises to pass the course
· Optional exercises to improve the level

Code-Aster is a software for finite element analysis and numerical simulation in mechanics and multiphysics. It is an open source and free software which can be downloaded from the page: www.code-aster.org.

Description
 
Aimed at:

This course is aimed at people who are interested in mechanical simulation by FEM. Any previous knowledge of Code-Aster is not necessary to follow the course.


Objectives:

The objective of the course is to reach a basic-intermediate level of knowledge for the simulation of mechanical problems (and thermal) with the use of Code-Aster software.


Description of Code-Aster:

Code-Aster was developed by the company Electricité de France (EDF), for the study and maintenance of the power plants and distribution networks. It was liberated under GNU license (General Public License) in October of 2001.

The capability of problem resolution include:
·Static and dynamic analysis
·Linear problem analysis
·Non linear problem analysis in material (95 constitutive laws) and geometry.
·3D analysis with under integrated elements
·2D analysis with plates and shell models
·1D analysis with beam models

Additionally, Code-Aster is integrated in the software package Salome-Meca which include Pre-Process software (Salome Platorm) and Post-Process software ParaView to make easier the preparation and execution of the simulations.
