The general pre-processor GID is favoured nowadays and recommended as pre-processor for SAFIR. GID allows the generation of any input file for 2D or 3D, thermal or structural problem. The so-called "problem types" are needed to make the link between GID and SAFIR. You can download these problem types here:


The pre-processor Safir Wizard allows the very fast creation of an input file for the 2D thermal analysis of a section based on a hot rolled steel H section. This pre-processor is not being developed nor maintained any more (GID is preferred) but the 2007 version can still be obtained here: 

  • Wizard limited pre-processor for 2D thermal analysis of H section: Wizard 2007.msi



The postprocessor DIAMOND allows you to view your structure and your results. It also allows creation of graphics showing the evolution of various results.

  • Document detailing the modifications in the successive versions of Diamond (from 2016): WhatsNewInDiamond.pdf
  • Presentation of some new capabilities of Diamond (since version 2016 v1.3): New features in Diamond
  • Diamond 2012 (reads OUT files) (uploaded 23-08-2016): Diamond2012.msi 



The SHELL tools allows you to run several successive SAFIR calculations in a batch mode.

    • If one calculation is aborted, SHELL goes to the next one.
    • The window messages linked to each run are available after all runs.
    • Each input file can be accessed directly from the SHELL by a double click on its name.


File for installation : tools.msi
