Old Versions of FAST

Postby Mohamed.Fekry » Fri Jun 26, 2020 6:08 am

I tried to google many times on FAST V8 or FAST V7, but i did not find them anymore. There are many resources and published papers on the web that had been written over the years based on these old versions, which would be helpful for young researchers to understand the basics if they try to recreate that old papers.
Would you tell me where can I find a server to download that old software and their manuals ?

Dear Mohamed,

As I announced here: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=1001, the NWTC Information Portal crashed before the replacement site is available. I've now shared old versions of FAST here:
FAST v7: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing
FAST v8: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing

That said, in general I would encourage you to upgrade to the newest version of FAST (OpenFAST).

Best regards,
