Modeling and Analysis in Python

Project description

mapy (modeling-analysis-python)
====
Tool to integrate different pre-processor platforms (Abaqus, NASTRAN, SimXpert).
The models can be loaded in the Python environment and passed from one
platform to another.

Composite
---------
A lot of effort has been done in the composite module in order to provide
efficient and convenient means to calculate the stiffness matrix ABD of
a laminated composite structure using the Classical Laminated Plate Theory
(CLPT). When the First-order Shear Deformation Theory (FSDT) is used the user
can calculate the matrix ABDE, with E containing the terms related to the
transverse shear strains.

SymPy utils
-----------
The highlight is the differential operator useful to represent and evaluate
strain-displacement matrices (kinematic relations). Many other functions used
by other modules are also available.

Structural analysis
-------------------
More implementation effort has been applied on structural analysis,
but it must be improved for any finite element modeling purpose.

Already developed
-----------------
- capability to read NASTRAN cards
- multiple coordinate systems capability
- a simple solver for truss elements (RODs)
- differential operator in SymPy to help on semi-analytical tools

Under development
-----------------
- capability to interface (read/write) thourgh ABAQUS API
- fitting cloud of measured points to a given shape function

To be developed
---------------
- a fixed object id for all grids, elements,
points etc which will keep all references

even if the user changes the entities' ids. Currently there is a lot of search based on python dictionaries by the entity id

- capability to write NASTRAN cards
- capability to write ABAQUS cards
- capability to interface with SimXpert? API (read/write)
- finite element solver for linear analysis (rods, beams, plates and solids)
OBS: requires numpy, scipy. The project alg3dpy(Google code) is part of this project.

Important
---------
- while the fixed object id for grids, elements etc is not implemented,
BE CAREFUL when renumbering any entity in the model, since it may loose
proper reference to the object
