Introduction to SALOME Platform

SALOME is an open-source platform for numerical simulation. It covers the whole workflow of most engineering studies: shape creation, meshing, simulation, exploration and visualization of the results, field manipulations and  uncertainty quantification. This training, led by OpenCascade and Kitware, is an overview of the pre- and post-processing of a numerical simulation with the SALOME platform from shape definition to result visualization.

This training is proposed by Kitware &
