GSoC-2021 Initial Contact
I am Shubhaditya Burela. I am currently pursuing my masters in Simulation Sciences in RWTH Aachen university. I am very much interested in contributing to MBDyn community. Based on the selection process for the GSOC-2021 I have successfully installed MBDyn and ran my first test case of cantilever beam. The output files for the cantilever beam test case are currently in the git repository (https://github.com/shubhadityaburela/GSOC_MBDYN/tree/main). I made small changes in the input file to see the variation in the results and the observations are mentioned in the README file in the same repository.
I am aware that I am a bit delayed in the process of starting for GSOC owing to my previous commitments for my Master thesis, but I will try my best to complete the work on runtime module creation before the deadline of 12th April. I have mostly understood how the runtime handling of the modules is done and have gone through the code for some simple modules in the due process. However I have a question regarding the project proposal. Is it possible to give the project proposal in parallel with the step 2 and 3 of the entry test??. I am interested in the topic "Implementing an unsteady Vortex Lattice aerodynamic element" for which I want to know further instructions, maybe I can get some idea about the kind of background one needs for a task like that. I have a background in Fluid-structure interaction and Finite elements as well for that matter.
Awaiting your reply,
Thank you, Shubhaditya Burela
