The free development version of Code_Aster - version 10.2 - is available for download. This version was stabilized in June 2010.
The distribution format remains identical: a unique archive contains Code_Aster and all other additional tools in the form of source code.
Apart from Code_Aster you will find the latest available updates: astk 1.8.1 (Aster’s launching graphical user interface), Eficas 2.0 (graphical editor for command files), Homard 9.6 (a mesh refining and unrefining tool), the med 2.3.6 library (exchange of meshes and fields with third codes), metis-edf-4.1 (renumbering tool), mumps 4.9.2 (direct solver), etc.
Please read the README file before the installation, then
python setup.py install --prefix=/opt/aster.
We advise you to use Intel compilers if the latter are available for Code_Aster, Mumps, and Metis. Use GNU compilers for other embedded devices.
