THREE OPTIONS FOR USE
Developed under Unix/Linux to work on Windows, OpenTURNS can be used in three different ways:
- as a C++ library incorporated into a specialist application
- as a python module
- using a graphic interface based on the EFICAS open source software developed by EDF's R&D
COMPATIBILITY, LICENSING AND DOCUMENTATION
OpenTURNS is compatible with SALOME, the CAD-computational-visualisation workbench developed by a partnership that includes EDF's R&D.
The source code of OpenTURNS is subject to LGPL licensing, and its documentation element is covered by the GNU FDL.
OpenTURNS can propagate uncertainties across a broad diversity of models : these models may be written in (almost) any language and at any level of complexity. As a result, very simple models can be written directly in Python. But OpenTURNS can also be interfaced with business code written in C, C++, FORTRAN or other language.
OpenTURNS offers detailed user documentation:
- the business content is covered by the ReferenceGuide, which describes the overall methodology and each method used
- the text interfaces covered by the Use CasesGuide, which contains around 100 Python scripts covering all the Python operators offered
- the User Manual defines the parameters used for the majority of methods
- the ExampleGuide shows how the methodology is implemented using a series of instructional examples
OpenTURNS is the subject of an ITECH training course (in French): "Uncertainty processing using OpenTURNS".>Contact us
