Introduction to the download area

Downloading the TELEMAC system

Two options are available to download and use the TELEMAC system:

  • For Windows users, the easiest option is to download the automatic installer. This provides a complete setup of the latest version of the software, including all its dependencies and prerequisites: MED, MUMPS, GOTM, AED2, METIS, MS-MPI, GFortran and Python, as well as all Python packages required to run TELEMAC examples and notebooks.
  • For developers and Linux users, the other option is to clone the latest source code from the Git Repository and build the modules under your own operating system and Fortran compiler. This option provides more flexibility for power users and is also recommended for those who want to stay permanently up to date with the latest corrections and improvements to the TELEMAC codebase.

For Asian users, our colleagues at Yuansuan, China, provide a

Validation and scientific benchmarks

If you would like to help developing the TELEMAC-MASCARET suite, we provide a set of validation cases. These allow checking the technical robustness of the various modules.


Using TELEMAC through GUIs

Given the popularity of the TELEMAC-MASCARET system, a number of GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) allows a user-friendly workflow for building models, analysing results and preparing outputs. Here are a couple, a combination of which can be used for different modelling activities:

  • FUDAA (deprecated) -- The Java-based graphical user interface FUDAA is being developed and maintained by the CEREMA (a member of the TELEMAC-MASCARET Consortium) allows users to setup model parameter, launch simulations and analyse model results without having to open a command line DOS windows or terminal. However, FUDAA is not yet equiped with a mesh generator.
  • Blue Kenue -- The primarily MS Windows based graphical user interface Blue Kenue is being developed and maintained by the Canadian Hydraulics Centre (a former commercial distributor of the TELEMAC-MASCARET system). Blue Kenue includes and mesh density criteria based mesh generator allowing user to set their own mesh growth ratio. Blue Kenue has also been tested with success on Linux operating systems through the Wine libraries.
  • SALOME-HYDRO (currently not available) -- For Linux (Debian-like) operating systems. SALOME-HYDRO is being developed, maintened and distributed under GPL licence by EDF. SALOME-HYDRO allows to import raw data, generate the mesh, setup model parameters, postprocess and analyse model results. It also includes tools for uncertainties quantification (OpenTURNS) and data assimilation and optimisation (ADAO). SALOME-HYDRO can be used in GUI mode and/or TUI mode with Python. 


Complementary tools

Finally, a number of additional tools are referenced here to support parallel computation and scripting.
