Code_Aster binary versions for Windows 64-bit, FEM is finally open, free AND easy

Code_Aster and MPI parallelism on Windows

The Code_Aster for Windows binary package available for free in our download page does not include MPI parallelism. For those interested in performance, we build a premium version, with powerful MPI parallelism and MUMPS 5.1.1, that aims to better exploit multi-core modern processors.

We present here performance comparison and time gain by increasing number of processes allocated to a run. We also show how to run a parallel case from AsterStudy module.

MPI Performances, linear static example

Here, testcase perf009 is used to evaluate performances on Code_Aster version 13.4. The mesh contains 261520 nodes and the mechanical model 803352 degrees of freedom. We study resolution time, using MUMPS, during the static linear computation having a single iteration.

Since resolution is the most consuming stage, similar gain is expected on industrial non-linear studies with multiple iterations. We evaluate the resolution time on a Core 2 Quad Q6600, with number of MPI processes (np) set to 1, 2 and 4, but it is possible to increase the number of processes even more if your CPU configuration makes it possible. We also compare results for different platforms.

As expected, on both platforms, resolution time is reduced as the number of processes increase. One can notice that better performance is obtained on a native Linux, but our native Code_Aster Windows performs better than Code_Aster running on a Linux virtual machine on Windows host.

Concerning memory consumption, it is obviously the same on all the platforms, without any side effect on elapsed time as long as there is enough RAM allocated to the virtual machine to avoid swapping.

Note : Code_Aster is officially distributed without MPI parallelism at the time being. Even for Linux, a parallel version should be build by yourself or provided by a third party.

Running a parallel case in AsterStudy on Windows

Code_Aster for Windows premium has been validated in the same way as the Code_Aster community version available for free in our download page. The premium version can run these extra MUMPS parallel testcases:

Let’s for example fill in the lineedit with “mumps01b” and click on the OK button.

Before to run, the advanced tab permit to set up “Number of MPI CPU”. It is set to 2 for this case.

AsterStudy has launched Code_Aster Windows premium. We can wait for the job to end.

After the run succeed, the export and message shows that number of MPI processes used to run this case is 2.

Conclusion

The Code_Aster for Windows premium version focus on performance and time gain, especially if you have large studies to run and good CPU configurations. Parallel run is easy to use and to manage graphically as the export file is automatically generated at launch by AsterStudy.

Beginning with AsterStudy and Salome-Meca on Windows

This post is a step-by-step tutorial for beginners wishing to start with the new AsterStudy interface on Windows. This is an update compared to this post, published a few months ago, before AsterStudy came out. We are going to proceed the same way here:

This time, each step is exclusively achieved using Salome-Meca on Windows.

Pick up an existing case

Let’s assume that you are familiar with the Salome installation process and already unzipped the Salome-Meca archive from our download page.

Double click on run_salome.bat

and let’s wait until Salome-Meca for Windows gets started …

It is not necessary to allow access to the network when asked by Salome services.

Once Salome-Meca is started, click on AsterStudy icon to activate AsterStudy module and select New to create a new study.

As for the previous post, we will deal with the forma02a case.

Fill in the lineedit with “forma02a” and click on the OK button.

The forma02a case should now be loaded in AsterStudy.

Run the case

Before to run the case, we need to define the output files.

We are not going to be interested by MACR_LIGN_COUPE output. Unfold the graphical view and right click on MACR_LIGN_COUPE command and select Delete.

Do the same for it’s corresponding output IMPR_TABLE.

We are interested in IMPR_RESU command, double click on Set output results and wait for the Edit command right panel to appear. Then click on the “…” button to select the result file location.

Select a directory and a file name for your result file, for example “forma02a.rmed” and click on Save button.

Then click on Apply button.

Click on OK button and go back to the History View tab.

Before to be able to run Code_Aster, the Salome-Meca study should be saved. Click on the save icon button, then select a folder and choose a file name, for example forma02 and click on Save button.

Click on the red square button for a green plus to appear, then click on Run button in AsterStudy interface. The AsterStudy Run window should appear. Click on Run button from this window to launch the solver.

AsterStudy has launched Code_Aster Windows. We can wait for the job to end.

Analyze results

Once the job is completed, it is possible to display the message file via the Show message file Button.

It is possible to directly open the result file in Paravis module from AsterStudy. Go back to the Case view tab and Data Files tab. Then right click on forma02a.rmed and choose Open In Paravis.

Once in paravis module, results can be explored as it is done in the previous post.

Follow this post to see more about post-processing with paravis.

Conclusion

This post demonstrate how AsterStudy and Salome-Meca made it easy to begin with Code_Aster on Windows. Many complete tutorials presented on Linux are feasible using this Salome-Meca and AsterStudy version. As an example, you can follow this brief presentation of a successfully reproduced tutorial on Windows.

Yes, AsterStudy module in Salome-Meca Windows package has been updated since November to 2017.0.2 version

Is the version available from your ‘Download’ link the 2017.0.2?

Currently the message file is written with the cp1252 encoding which results in numerous incorrectly displayed characters (such as “Version 13.4.0 modifiÚe le 29/06/2017”, “d’Úchange”), is it possible to correct these by changing the encoding to UTF8 for instance? Thanks

OEM encoding is preinstalled in your Windows OS. A workaround to solve display issues is to force cp1252 in your console:
chcp 1252

Hello, I just installed, and don’t find my answer in FAQ.
1. When I click on AsterStudy, and New case, I don’t have “operation” in Menu. What is wrong?
2. I noticed that the logo is not the samme as on the tutotorial,n I don’t have the Orange W on AsterStudy

Can you use salome-meca for windows in shell mode, similar to how it can be run on Linux?

This seems to work (to be confirmed depending to what you want to do) :

Good morning. I downloaded the latest 2019 version on a laptop with Windows 10 and followed the steps.
After I started the analysis, the hourglass started to rotate and nothing more happens.
When I checked the stderr_command_salome.log file found in folder C:\Temp\CodeAster\forma02a_Files\RunCase_1\Result-forma02a
i found “abnormal abort” messages.
Can you please advise what am I doing wrong?

Thank you very much
Balint

Hi, downloaded and unzipped “Salome-Meca 2019 W64 Fix” and started running few test cases – forma02a, forma01a

For all the test cases, RunCase_1 is going on indefinitely with a rotating hourglass icon and not giving any result. I changed amount of RAM up to 16 GB. Still the run is not getting complete even after 30 minutes and no error shown in python3.exe window.

I have unzipped the sm-2019-w64-1.2 folder in E drive but AsterStudy Workdir is getting created in C Drive-Users-AppData – Local – Temp directory. Could this be the reason? Should I keep the Salome-Meca folder in C Drive only?

Can you please help on this? Thanks.

Reply received from Mr Luca for same query asked through contact form – It works.

Hope this helps, best regards,

To add to my above post, after I close the Salome-Meca window, following text appears in background python3.exe window:

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin “windows”
in “”.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
