Launching the Dapta Trial
Big News! After months of hard work, we can finally share a glimpse of what we have been working on. Not only that, but you can even try it out yourself. Here is an overview of what the Dapta app is all about.
Dynamic aeroelastic flutter and divergence analysis with Python and Calculix
We add a dynamic aeroelastic stability analysis to our parametric wing analysis, so that we can calculate critical flutter and divergence flight velocities. We extract mass and stiffness information from our CalculiX model and then solve a complex eigenvalue problem with the help of the Scipy sparse matrix library.
Design and analysis of RTS steered-fibre composites
In this post, we take a brief look at steered-fibre composites and particularly RTS composites. What are they? Why do we want to use them? And how do we design with them?
Multidisciplinary analysis with Python, PreCICE and Calculix Crunchix
We add a simple parametric aerodynamics model to calculate the aero loads on the wing and couple it with our CalculiX structures model using the preCICE library and python API.
Design optimisation in practice with Python, OpenMDAO and Scipy
This is the third post in the parametric model series. In this post, we will first review and check the results generated by the parametric study, and then move onto the topic of design optimisation using OpenMDAO.
Automated FEM analysis and output processing with Python and CalculiX CrunchiX (ccx)
Automate adding composite material properties to our model, running a static analysis in CalculiX CrunchiX (CCX) and reading & plotting the outputs — so that we can actually run a parametric study…
Parametric FEM model creation with Python and CalculiX GraphiX (cgx)
In this post, we will see how easy it is to use Python and open-source software to automate the creation of parametric FEM models for design studies.
Fresh look for Dapta(Blade)
Over the last 18 months the company’s focus has changed but the name and logo stayed the same…until now! DaptaBlade was founded 2 years ago
On the road to design optimisation
In our first blog post we want to demystify the topic of optimisation in engineering.What is it? Why would we want to use it? What
