Open Source solvers in the Cloud was created by RichardS
Hi all,
starting from Dec. 1st 2015, SimScale has introduced the Community which opens now all simulation features of SimScale free for public use including cloud computing resources of 3000 Core hours and 500 GB storage space.

With this move we provide the possibility to use Code_Aster, CalCulix and also CFD solvers on cloud instances with up to 60GB RAM and 32 Cores through an intuitive graphical user interface in a standard web browser and no local installation.

This brings the great but sometimes hard to learn open source software a lot closer to new users who have little experience with simulation and also to those who are used to work with commercial packages that highly rely on a graphical user interface.
Additionally, providing simulation through a standard web browser makes those solvers fully independent from the operating system of the user, bringing solvers like Code_Aster to Linux as well as to IOS, Windows or even Android devices.
All users will be able to share and import public projects created by community users, discuss problems, learn from other people's simulations and finally build and spread their knowledge.

You find some more information in a blog post concerning the introduction of the community.

I would therefore very much appreciate any comments/thoughts you might have on it and discuss those here.

Best regards,
Richard

Alneos.com was first one
Very good news, txs

Hi calc4fem,
it might be true that they offered a remote solving capability via a remote desktop,
but SimScale is the first to offer and end-to-end CAE solution (meshing, simulation setup and post-processing) in a unified GUI without any local installation that runs in the browser. Which lowers the technical and financial barriers to simulation (which Alneos solution also does) but additionally SimScale is lowering the know-how barrier significantly.
It would be nice if you could try it out and post your impressions.

Best,
Richard

Hello Richard
I have tried free versions a little bit. I like it, but there is only issue that it may not be very easy for inexperienced users.
I did not have chance to try extended version yet. Code-Aster is very powerful software with many useful features, and I believe that it is good idea to take it as basic program. I am following for simscale as its potential user in the future. Especially that the code-aster is very complex for use without special experience.

I have a question (about Simscale) Does it support special things as X-FEM, wear or soil models (from Code-Aster)?
