SAL Home DATA Software Packages


GiD has been designed as a universal, adaptive and user-friendly graphical user interface for geometrical modelling, data input and visualisation of results for all types of numerical simulation programs. Typical problems that can be successfully tackled with GiD include most situations in solid and structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, electromagnetics, heat transfer, geomechanics, etc. using finite element, finite volume, boundary element, finite difference or point based (meshless) numerical procedures. GiD is ideal to be used in a multi-user environment in universities, research centers and enterprises for development and applications of different numerical simulation programs.

There are two modes of use in the same version:

  • ACADEMIC: completely functional and limited in the size of the problems that can be generated and visualized. Useful to run small models for academic purposes.
  • PROFESSIONAL: Entering a password to the previus version, it becomes totally unlimited.
