LibAster is an open source python library for solving structural and thermomechanical problems using the finite element method. It is based on Code_Aster, a high-performance solver distributed under the GNU Public License version 2 by EDF R&D.
LibAster is a friendly fork to Code_Aster that differs by using standard tools to compile (waf), track changes (mercurial), run the tests (stand-alone script), etc. The goal is to experiment with changes that may eventually be merged into the Code_Aster sources if accepted by its maintainers.
LibAster passes over 99% of Code_Aster's 2200 test-cases. LibAster is based on the latest stable version, STA10.3, and will keep up with future releases.
