CalculiX CrunchiX USER`S MANUAL version 2.11

The surface behavior parameter is way off from the recommendation in the Calculix manual. CalculiX FE-Model of a jet engine with turbo-charger compressor blue and turbine red.

I’d appreciate any level of support via PatreonLiberapayor PayPal! Click HERE for the jet-engine-model and documentation. Put all files into one directory. The driving force is gravity. Click HERE to see the example of the turbo-charger turbine.

Click HERE to see the example of the turbo-charger compressor. CalculiX is a package designed to solve field problems. Contact information can be found at the bottom of the “Download” page. Did not know that this is possible in CalculiX. The input file is given together with two scripts, in order to create an animation with cgx. The compressor is made of casted aluminum alloy AlSi – C and the turbine of a high temperature alloy Inco C. 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. Both programs can be caldulix independently. In addition the eigenfrequencies were calculated to determine possible resonances with the vanes.

One degree of freedom is left, so they can rotate about their fix-point. The models are meshed with 20 noded brick elements with reduced integration.

Static, dynamic and thermal solutions are available. Read more about what I do at my blog. Anyone for making an importer into the animation workbench? Do you think this could be calculkx to do kinematics-type stuff, like animate a four-bar linkage and show the time-dependent stress concentrations throughout the members?

The CalculiX package was developed by manuao team of enthusiasts in their raw spare time. The calculations were done to determine the burst-speed and the highest allowable rotational speed concerning low cycle fatigue and creep. Like my FreeCAD work?

The jet engine was build around a turbo-charger rotor in the early 90’s by Andreas Funke and Klaus Wittig. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to calcukix post.

The method used is the finite element method. I’m still pretty new to mxnual, can you expand on these instructions a little more?


The contact feature did need tuning. 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.

The solver is able to do linear and non-linear calculations. For a quick overview of the capabilities of CalculiX the calculid of an investigation of a small jet engine are presented. After some trial and error I got a working bouncing pendulum with just two finite elements.

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 distribution.
