SimScale is based on cutting-edge open source solver technology currently being used by leading companies, in a large number of industries with different requirements, such as automotive, aerospace, process technology and power generation. We can rapidly implement new technology and ensure the greatest compatibility between SimScale and third-party software tools, with a high level of accuracy.
Code_Aster is an open source software package for simulation in structural mechanics, including fatigue, damage, fracture, contact, geomaterials, porous media and multi-physics coupling. It was originally developed by EDF as an in-house application for safety-related simulations in nuclear energy environment. The software has been evaluated through independent comparisons in regards to analytical and experimental results, and was benchmarked against commercial codes. Code_Aster is used for various applications by industry leading companies including:
