Extracting mid surface

Posted by venkat at November 28. 2016


I am currently using code aster solver for shell element analysis ,for that mid surface is required.   Is it possible to extract mid surface in salome , 


Thank you for fast reply


Warm Regards

I  (own engineering office, mechanical engineering, if interested: see would like to switch from ANSYS to Salome-Meca.

But the generation of mid surfaces is a must-be !!

Most of my steel constructions are plate constructions, and I need urgently a possibility to generate shell models from CAD.

I'm wondering, that no other user have asked here!

Also there should be a possibility to prolong the mid-surfaces , that they touch again.

Warm regards from cold North-Germany

As I know, only LS-PrePost (it is free very useful prepost for LS-Dyna) can create midsurface, after that you can save geometry to neutral format. Direct link to archive

Best regards,

we are working on this subject inside the SHAPER module. It is a tricky problem for a general geometry. We built a prototype for standard shapes: planes, cylindres, sphere. I hope we can provide this solution in Salome 9.9.
