Anyone for making an importer into the animation workbench?

The compressor is made of casted aluminum alloy AlSi – C and the turbine of a high temperature alloy Inco C. Static, dynamic and thermal solutions are available.

For a quick overview of the capabilities of CalculiX the results of an investigation of a small jet engine are presented. The contact feature did need tuning.

Do you think this could be extended to do kinematics-type stuff, like animate a four-bar linkage and show the time-dependent stress concentrations throughout the members? CalculiX FE-Model of a jet engine with turbo-charger compressor blue and turbine red.

Click HERE to see the example of the turbo-charger compressor. I’m still pretty new to this, can you expand on these instructions a little more? The FE-model was build from scratch with CalculiX and the compressor- and turbine models together with solver input files can be found in the cakculix.


Exploring Calculix – FreeCAD Forum

Like my FreeCAD work? Did not know that this is possible in CalculiX. I’d calculxi any level of support via PatreonLiberapayor PayPal! So I tried to find out, if it is possible to do some basic physics with it.

The rigid body concept is used to fix the two bodies in space. Contact information can be found at the bottom of the “Download” page.

Because the solver makes use of the abaqus input format it is possible to use commercial pre-processors as well. The calculations were done to determine the burst-speed and the highest allowable rotational speed concerning low cycle fatigue and creep. The models are meshed calcculix 20 noded brick elements with reduced integration.

Put all files into one directory. CalculiX is a package designed to solve field problems. The driving force is gravity. The method used is the finite element method.

Open the results with cgx and there type Code: The CalculiX package was developed by a team of enthusiasts calfulix their raw spare time. The input file is given together with two scripts, in order to create an animation with cgx.

A simple step reader is included.

Click HERE for the jet-engine-model and documentation. In addition the eigenfrequencies were calculated to determine possible resonances with the vanes. Click HERE to see the example mnual the turbo-charger turbine. One degree of freedom is left, so they manial rotate about their fix-point.


You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. The surface behavior parameter is way off from the recommendation in the Calculix manual. After some trial and error I got a working bouncing pendulum with just two finite elements. Last edited by makkemal on Wed Feb 08, 1: Read more about what I do at my blog. The right and left side of the disks are connected by cyclic symmetry equations which allow to calculate eigenvalues and mode-shapes for certain nodal diameters of a rotational symmetric volume based only on a segment of the structure.

Both programs calchlix be used independently. The jet engine was build around a turbo-charger rotor in the early 90’s by Andreas Funke and Klaus Wittig.

The solver is able to do linear and non-linear calculations.
