Rear view of the jet-engine FE-model

Click here to get There are no boundary conditions applied. The intention is to give insight in the way cgx deals with geometry and how certain parts are designed in cgx.

Some documentation of the jet-engine project is available. The documentation is in German language. The first part lists the specification, gives technical background of the engine and explains the detailed anaytical design of all components. The testing of the real engine is documented in the three build-reports. Photos of the test-bed and of the disassembled engine can be found in the documentation of the second build.

A 2D thermal model was created based on the formulas and results as stated in the documentation listed above:


Time dependent temperatures. 2D-model with 1D-thermal network.
From cold to full rated in 3 sec, then 16 sec at steady state conditions.
(This is an animated gif file. In Firefox, you might want to install the plugin Toggle Animated Gifs to add replay controls.)

The 2D thermal results were mapped on the 3D model:


Mapped temperatures, after 16 sec at steady state conditions.
