CalculiX CrunchiX USER’S MANUAL version 2.7

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

So I tried to find out, if it is possible to do calculkx basic physics with it. Static, dynamic and thermal solutions are available.

Do you think this could be extended to do kinematics-type stuff, like animate a four-bar linkage and show clculix time-dependent stress concentrations throughout the members? Click Calculi for the jet-engine-model and documentation. The CalculiX package was developed by a team of enthusiasts in their raw spare time.

The input file is given together with two scripts, in order to create an animation with cgx. The rigid body concept is used to fix the two bodies in space. I’d appreciate any level of support via PatreonLiberapayor PayPal!


One degree of freedom is left, so they can rotate about their fix-point. Last edited by makkemal on Wed Feb 08, 1: Like my FreeCAD work? The calculations were done to determine the burst-speed and the highest allowable rotational speed concerning low cycle fatigue and creep. A simple step reader is included.

The compressor is made of calculi aluminum alloy AlSi – C and the turbine of a high temperature alloy Inco C. After some trial and error I got a working bouncing pendulum with just two finite elements.

The solver is able to do linear and non-linear calculations. Read more about what I do at my blog. The contact feature did need tuning. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Because the solver makes use of the abaqus input format it is possible to use commercial manula as well. For a quick overview of the capabilities of CalculiX the results of an investigation of a small jet engine are presented. Anyone for making an importer into the animation workbench?

The models are meshed with 20 manial brick elements with reduced integration. The driving force is gravity. Click HERE to see the example of the turbo-charger compressor.

cgx(1) — calculix-cgx — Debian stretch — Debian Manpages

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. Contact information can be found at the bottom of the “Download” page. 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.


Open the results with cgx and there type Code: The surface behavior parameter is way off from the recommendation in the Calculix manual. CalculiX is a package designed to solve field problems. The method used is the finite element method. CalculiX FE-Model of a jet engine with turbo-charger compressor blue and turbine red.

In addition the eigenfrequencies were calculated to determine possible resonances with the vanes. Did not know that this is possible in CalculiX. Put all files into one directory. The jet engine was build around a turbo-charger rotor in the early 90’s by Andreas Funke and Klaus Wittig.
