September 2023 Edition



Has it only been one year since we launched OpenRadioss? We have all come so far and so fast! 

Downloads of the open-source code started within minutes of launch. With our ever-expanding worldwide OpenRadioss Community, today it means that OpenRadioss is now not only being used but being enhanced and adapted to meet a variety of diverse needs across industry and academia. 

At two very successful user events (Paris 2022, Aachen 2023), our community members were very keen to not only present but freely discuss their projects and seek the expertise of others. This was the vision we had a year ago, and now many others have discovered the benefits of being part of an active open-source software Community. 

Thank you everyone who have already contributed and supported our efforts in many ways – especially our Host and Sponsors for the Aachen event. We have a couple of announcements about how we are continuing to spread the OpenRadioss name wider, but more about that later!
