CAA V5 for CATIA - Analysis

Required for developing on top of the CAA V5 Finite Element Analysis Infrastructure.

Duration:

5 days

Objectives:

At the end of this course, attendees will be familiar with the CAA V5 Analysis development infrastructure, know how to integrate their own mesh generator, define their new pre-processing features, how to plug their own solver, and how to define some specific ways to display the results.

Participants' profile:

C++ programmers ONLY.

Prerequisites:

To take full advantage of this instruction, participants are expected to be familiar with:
     - CATIA V5 Analysis workbenches practice : GPS Training recommended    
     - CAA V5 For CATIA - Getting Started (Mandatory)
