SALOME: Open-Source Framework for CAD and Analysis Applications

The SALOME project is an open-source framework that links CAD and analysis applications using Open CASCADE components. It aims to reduce the time it takes to produce analysis models from CAD models in industrial environments, improve the distribution of numerical simulation softwares, and provide a simple and efficient user interface. The project is led by the Open CASCADE company and involves nine partners, including industrial companies, research organizations, and software editors. Collaborative development on the Web site is one of the major innovations of this project.
