After some trial and error I got a working bouncing pendulum with just two finite elements. The compressor is made of casted aluminum alloy AlSi – C and the turbine of a high temperature alloy Inco C. CalculiX is a package designed to solve field problems.

So I tried to find out, if it is possible to do some basic physics with it. The solver is able to do linear and non-linear calculations. 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 manaul on a segment of the structure.

The input file is given together with two scripts, in order to create an animation with cgx. Static, dynamic and thermal solutions are available.

I’d appreciate any level of support via PatreonLiberapayor PayPal!


I’m still pretty new to this, can you expand on these instructions a little more? Click HERE to see the example of the turbo-charger compressor.

For a quick overview of the capabilities of CalculiX the results of an investigation of a small jet engine are presented. Read more mahual what I do at my blog. The surface behavior parameter is way off from the recommendation in the Calculix manual.

Did not know that this is possible in CalculiX.

Because the solver makes use of the abaqus input format it is possible to use commercial pre-processors as well. In addition the eigenfrequencies were calculated to determine possible resonances with the vanes. The driving force is gravity. The contact feature did need tuning.

One degree of freedom is left, so they can rotate about their fix-point. Click HERE for the jet-engine-model and documentation.

The CalculiX package was developed by a team of enthusiasts in their raw spare time. The method used is the finite element method. The jet engine was build around a turbo-charger rotor in the early 90’s by Andreas Funke and Klaus Wittig. Open the results with cgx and there type Code: Click HERE to see the example of the turbo-charger turbine. Put all files into one directory.

The FE-model was build from scratch with CalculiX and the compressor- and turbine models together with solver input capculix can be found in the distribution. Contact information can be found at the bottom of the “Download” page. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. Anyone for making an importer into the animation workbench? Both programs can be used independently. The calculations were done to determine the burst-speed and the highest allowable rotational speed concerning low cycle fatigue and creep.


Do you think this could be extended calcuilx 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. Like my FreeCAD work?

A simple step reader is included. The models are meshed with 20 noded brick elements with reduced integration. Last edited by makkemal on Wed Feb 08, 1: The rigid body concept is used to fix the two bodies in space.
