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.

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. Static, dynamic and thermal solutions are available.

Click HERE to see the example of the turbo-charger turbine. In addition the eigenfrequencies were calculated to determine possible resonances with the vanes.

By Sebastian Rodriguez — [Libre Mechanics] [1]. Check the quality of your mesh in CalculiX GraphiX or by using any other good preprocessor.

According to my experience, the following guidelines are quite helpful:. This tutorial is intended as a reference or starting point for those who choose to use more high-performance software and control. Static, dynamic and thermal solutions are available. Permissions beyond the scope of this license may be available at http: The memory needed to run a problem depends on the largest node and element numbers the computational time, though, does not.

The CalculiX package was developed by a team of enthusiasts in their raw spare time.

Advanced CalculiX Tutorial

For this precise tutorial it will be assumed that the user its already familiar with the working calcullix of CalculiX CCX and CGX modules, if this is not the case it is recommendable to refer first to some beginner tutorial for example: However, there is no standard way of doing this, so each vendor has created his own modifications without necessarily publishing them. This program uses the openGL library for visualization and the glut library for window management and event handling.


CalculiX is a package designed to solve field problems. Therefore, most finite element programs modify the standard shape functions for linear elements to alleviate these problems. Therefore it must know the name and syntax of each command, or at least constant consultation of the user manual.

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

You can easily verify whether the thicknesses you specified are correct. The linear version allows you to check easily whether the boundary conditions are correct no unrestrained rigid body modesthe loading is the one you meant to apply etc.

The iterative scaling method cf. As the user is probably aware by now, the document make a number of simplifying assumptions tuttorial the tutorial progressed, this is done in the interest of gaining a clearer understanding of these fundamental without getting bogged down in special details and exceptions.

Contact information can be found at the bottom of the “Download” page. It may lead to undesirable results if a lot of bending is involved.

Because the solver makes use of the abaqus input format it is possible to use commercial pre-processors as well.

The right and tutoriaal 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 tutoriwl on a segment of the structure. The models are meshed with 20 noded brick elements with reduced integration. The solver is able to do linear and non-linear calculations.


Calculix is a very powerful tool of analysis, highly configurable allowing the user to have COMPLETE CONTROL over the analysis, with more than 18 types of analysis covering most fields of study finite element Calculix’s user can modify any variable on the analysis at discretion, the huge amount of information and documentation on the web make CalculiX a great alternative for the development of research projects where computer tools must accommodate the needs of the study.

Shaded animations of static and dynamic results, the common color plots and time history plots can be created. 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.

Most of the documents recurses as images and this tutorial its available at the sourceforge page. 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 skip or compare any step of the tutorial by its own. If the linear version doesn’t run, the nonlinear problem won’t run either. By no means it hast the complete history of contact handling on CalculiX, it is much broader in scope that can be presented calculx a single document such as this, but it is sincerely hoped that this tutorial will enable one to do a better job calcuix the definition, solution and study of this kind of analysis.
