I personally work on linux but i know from colleagues that there is also a windows version of Salome.
Please see under "Packages for Windows" on http://www.salome-platform.org/download ... nt-version.

Hey,

I am currently working on integrating Elmer into FreeCAD as part of my GSoC (Google Summer of Code) project. For more info see my project proposal: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mX3 ... sp=sharing

I already almost finished phase 1 of the project. If you are interrested please follow my progress on the FreeCAD forum in my activity log: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 88#p174988. There will be something to play around with later this week. Comments and ideas are always welcome :D

Hi Wil,
The works of Markus regarding the GSoC -work in the freecad forum are noteworthy from the perspective of GUI interfacing of Elmer Run with FreeCad.
Cheers,
Yours Sincerely,

Let me post here some preliminary results produced with the work of Markus, since the GSoC is almost over. See also https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=22576 and https://github.com/drhooves/FreeCAD/tree/femnewsolver
By using Elmer it is now also possible to simulate fluid flow combined with heat in FreeCAD.
The model, including the geometry, the mesh and the constraint-set-up is completely done in FreeCAD.
It is the 3D equivalent of the non-gui Tutorial 4 "Compressible flow passing a step" in the "FlowStepCompressible" directory.
