Simpack Rotorblade Generator

The Simpack Rotorblade Generator allows users to model flexible blades with diverse levels of fidelity, using standard industry input data. This tool enables precise simulations of blades undergoing substantial deformations, incorporating effects such as bend-twist coupling and centrifugal stiffening. Moreover, users can seamlessly integrate cross-sectional matrix input data derived from intricate blade designs in CATIA Composites, enhancing the versatility and accuracy of the simulation process.


Simpack Interface to AeroDyn

The Simpack Interface to AeroDyn establishes a crucial linkage between Simpack, a dynamic simulation software, and AeroDyn, an advanced aerodynamics software library developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). This integration facilitates the seamless coupling of aerodynamic forces with Simpack for simulating horizontal-axis turbines.
