Base Tutorial. Topic. Finite Element Analysis. Level If the solver CalculiX is not installed see FEM Install. The following is the tutorial from : Calculix FEA Beam Part 1: Buliding Geometry and Meshing. This article is the first. Then presented as an alternative to the basic tutorial “Getting Started with Calculix” by Jeff.

A vda CAD interface is available. For a quick overview of the capabilities of CalculiX the results of an investigation of a small jet engine are presented. Because the turorial makes use of the abaqus input format it is possible to use commercial pre-processors as well. Static, dynamic and thermal solutions are available. According to my experience, the following guidelines are quite helpful:. The compressor is made of casted aluminum alloy AlSi – C and the turbine of a high temperature alloy Inco C.
In addition the eigenfrequencies were calculated to determine possible resonances with the vanes. For the ease follow of this tutorial the different used and generated files named on the different chapters are available for download, allowing the user to clculix or compare any step of the tutorial tutroial its own. The solver is able to do linear and non-linear calculations.
By no means it hast the complete history of contact handling on CalculiX, it is much broader in scope that can be presented in a single document such as this, but it is sincerely hoped that this tutorial will enable one to do a better job on the definition, solution and study of this kind of analysis.
In CalculiX, slave middle nodes in contact formulations are internally connected to their neighboring vertex nodes by means of multiple point constraints. This tutorial is intended as a reference or starting point for those who choose to use more high-performance software and control. The CalculiX package was developed by a calclix of enthusiasts in their raw spare time.
Usual FEA applications involve analysis where multi body assemblies are loaded to determine the contact behavior between each other, some of this data are friction, relative displacement and contact pressure. This is due to the characteristics associated with engineering free-software currently available. Retrieved from ” http: Click HERE to see the example of the turbo-charger turbine.
This makes the contact area stiffer. This leads to a larger variation in the results if you use linear elements. This results in very high speed if a hardware-accelerated openGL-library is available and still high speed for software-rendering MesaGL. Despite this the quality of documentation and logic handled at the command causes the program is easily manageable, where skilled users might include their own functions.
The standard shape functions for quadratic elements are very good. CalculiX is a package designed to solve field problems. This tutoial uses the openGL library for visualization and the glut library for window management and event handling. However, adhering to a couple of simple rules can make life a lot easier.
The solver is able to do linear and non-linear calculations. Most of the documents recurses as images and caldulix tutorial its available at the sourceforge page. Since CalculiX uses the standard shape functions for linear elements too, the results must be considered with care. Most finite element programs use these standard functions.

Please keep in mind that any file may vary from user to user by the meshing and computational conditions, but it does not meaning this difference will represent an error of processing.
However, there is no standard way of doing this, so each vendor has created his own modifications without necessarily publishing them. PDF Usual FEA applications involve analysis where multi body assemblies are loaded to determine the contact behavior between each other, some of this data are friction, relative displacement and contact pressure. CalculiX user interface is cgx program, which allows to create the geometric model, making the mesh, generate the loads and constraints and post-processing of information.
The method used is the finite element method. In some problems you can save memory by choosing an iterative solution method. So if you notice large gaps in the numbering, get rid of them and you will need less memory. It may lead to undesirable results if a lot of bending is involved.
That way you get the expanded form of these elements in the. The linear version allows you to check easily whether the boundary conditions are correct no unrestrained rigid body modes tutoroal, the loading is the one you meant to apply etc. The jet engine was build around a turbo-charger rotor in the early 90’s by Andreas Funke and Klaus Wittig. Furthermore, you get a feeling what the solution should look like. Also, a cut through the model can be done which creates a section and it is possible to zoom through the model.
Contact information can be found at the bottom of the “Download” page. Therefore, most finite element programs modify the standard shape functions for linear elements to alleviate these problems.
The calculations were done to determine the burst-speed and the highest allowable rotational speed concerning low cycle fatigue and creep. CalculiX is a package designed to solve field problems.
