Welcome to SALOME Platform! Modern technological products (cars, structures, electrical or electronic equipment) are getting more and more complex every year and must meet increasingly severe requirements in terms of quality and performance. For example, for structures and their environment the demands to reduce risks and optimize costs are extremely high. It requires particularly refined simulations concerning structural behavior and robustness to ensure high reliability.
The numeric modeling of a physical problem, the development of solutions and their integration into the design process are often handled in very specific environments. SALOME represents a generic CAD-based application for digital simulation with "high reactivity to market evolutions and customer expectations".
SALOME is a free software that provides a generic platform for Pre and Post-Processing for numerical simulation. It is based on an open and flexible architecture made of reusable components available as free software.
SALOME is a CAD/CAE integration platform. It provides reusable components for:
SALOME is tailored for integration of custom components:
The SALOME platform is available in Open Source.
What can you do in SALOME? (Some of SALOME main functions)
From the point of view of the Architecture, Salome is composed of several modules.
This part of documentation on Salome also covers general Salome functionalities, common for all modules, such as study management, Salome viewers, preferences, etc.
And finally, there is an additional chapter, which provides a short guide about the usage of SALOME GUI Python interface to access SALOME GUI functionalities from the Python code.
