'rotor-eigenfrequency-analysis' simulation project by rszoeke


I created a new simulation project called 'rotor-eigenfrequency-analysis':

In this project the eigenfrequencies and the corresponding eigenmodes of a rotor have been computed with SimScale.

More of my public projects can be found here.


The CAD model of the rotor has been uploaded in STEP format and meshed using the automated tet-meshing algorithm. The resulting mesh is displayed in the figure below.

The simulation has been set up using the Frequency analysis type which allows a straightforward setup of all boundary conditions and other settings of the simulation.

The results not only provide the numerical values of the eigenfrequencies but also allow to visualize the displacement behavior for the corresponding eigenmodes of the rotor.
