The archives for Version 3.0 contain one main directory named LSTASC_3.0, populated with its files. You can verify the contents of any archive that you download for Linux using the 'tar' command. For example,

      tar tvzf lstasc_31_100691_x64_rhel6.tar.gz

produces this output

The LS-TaSC User Manual is a PDF format file User_Manual.pdf.

To install, first 'cd' to a directory where you would like to maintain the LS-TaSC directory LSTASC_3.0 as a subdirectory. Copy the downloaded archive into that directory. Then unpack the archive. A subdirectory LSTASC_3.0 will be created beneath the chosen directory, in which all executables are placed. For example,

      cp lstasc_31_100691_x64_rhel6.tar.gz $HOME
      cd $HOME
      tar xvzf lstasc_31_100691_x64_rhel6.tar.gz

It is probably best to add the newly-created LSTASC_3.0 directory to your path, though this is not necessary. For example, in this case you would add $HOME/LSTASC_3.0 to your path. LS-TaSC can be run strictly from the command line, directly in a batch mode. The preferred method is to use the LS-TaSC graphical user interface, and the visualization tools which are a part of this program.

      lstasc_script input.lstasc  (runs lstasc in batch mode)
      lstasc [input.lstasc]       (starts the graphical user interface tool)

NOTE: All of the files in the LSTASC_EXE must remain together in a directory with the exception of the example problems. The lstasc program will not function correctly if it cannot find the lstasc_scriptand other executables.

VERSION 2.1

AMD/Intel x64 RedHat EL6 lstasc_21_86715_x64_rhel6.tar.gz

AMD/Intel x64 SuSE 10.3 lstasc_21_86715_x64_sles10.tar.gz


The archives for Version 2.1 contain one main directory named LSTASC_EXE, populated with its files. You can verify the contents of any archive that you download for Linux using the 'tar' command. For example,

      tar tvzf lstasc_2_70126_x64_suse11.tar.gz

produces this output

The LS-TaSC User Manual is a PDF format file topology_manual.pdf.

To install, first create a directory where you would like to install LS-TaSC. Copy the downloaded archive into that directory. Then 'cd' into that directory, and unpack the archive. A subdirectory LSTASC_EXE will be created beneath the installation directory where all executables are placed. For example,

      mkdir $HOME/LSTASC2
      cp lstasc_2_70126_x64_suse11.tar.gz $HOME/LSTASC2
      cd $HOME/LSTASC2
      tar xvzf lstasc_2_70126_x64_suse11.tar.gz

It is probably best to add the LSTASC_EXE directory to your path, though this is not necessary. In this case, you would add $HOME/LSTASC2/LSTASC_EXE to your path. LS-TaSC can be run strictly from the command line, directly in a batch mode. The preferred method is to use the LS-TaSC graphical user interface, and the visualization tools which are a part of this program.

      lstasc_script input.lstasc  (runs lstasc in batch mode)
      lstasc [input.lstasc]       (starts the graphical user interface tool)

NOTE: All of the files in the LSTASC_EXE must remain together in a directory with the exception of the example problems. The lstasc program will not function correctly if it cannot find the lstasc_scriptand other executables.

2. Installation under Microsoft Windows

First download the zipped archive for your machine.

VERSION 3.1

HARDWAREOSARCHIVE
AMD/Intel Windows 64-bit LS-Tasc3.1-win-x64-installer20160608.exe

VERSION 3.0

HARDWAREOSARCHIVE
AMD/Intel Windows 64-bit LS-Tasc3.0-win-x64-installer20140918.exe


The archive for LS-TaSC 3 is an installation program. Save the file to disk before running.

VERSION 2.1

HARDWAREOSARCHIVE
AMD/Intel Windows XP and up lstasc_21_86715_ia32_win.zip


There is no installation program required for LS-TaSC 2. Simply create a folder, and unzip the contents of the downloaded archive into that folder. To start LS-TaSC, locate the LS-TaSC program and double-click it. You may wish to create a short-cut on your desktop rather than remember where the LS-TaSC folder is located.

NOTE: All of the files in the LSTASC_EXE must remain together in a directory with the exception of the example problems. The lstasc program will not function correctly if it cannot find the lstasc_script and other executables.

Manual Examples: There is a zipfile manual_examples.zip containing the examples used in the manual. You should unpack this archive. For more about extracting and running these examples, read the next section.

3. Manual Examples

There is an archive of Examples contained in manual_examples.tar. The Windows installation file contains manual_examples.zipinstead. The zip file is unpacked in the usual way under Microsoft Windows. You may unpack the tar archive under Linux using the tar command

      tar xvf manual_examples.tar

The files in this archive are contained in one main directory named MANUAL. All example input.lstasc files have an name with a suffix '.lstasc'.

  • To run an example under Linux: issue the command 'lstasc input_filename.lstasc', and enter the 'Run' panel. Or, start 'lstasc' with no command line arguments, and then browse for the input file.
  • To run an example under Microsoft Windows: Start the lstasc program and then open the file from the File menu. Switch to the Run tab in order to start the program.

*** NOTE *** All problems require some solver in order to run. Typically the solver must be located in the PATH or in the LSTASC_EXE directory. Open the Cases tab, and double click on the items to view the solver command that is required. A typical problem requires an executable ls971_double in the PATH, or in the LSTASC_EXE directory.
