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.

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 to commercialise the Z-beam novel aerodynamic tailoring technology that Olivia developed during her PhD. Olivia was looking to apply that technology to wind turbines, UAV wings and propellers, making “DaptaBlade” …

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 are the challenges for practicing engineers today? If you wanted to implement design optimisation, where should you start? What are the mistakes to avoid? Read on for answers to these …
