IPS Bellows & Grommets and IPS Flat Cables

Simulate flexible, moving bellows and grommets with fine structures using a fast FEM-based approach. Flat Cables is a tool for fast and realistic simulations of flat cables. Flexible objects are defined by their physical dimensions in 2D, along with a thickness parameter for the third dimension, and material parameters.

Other flexible parts

The dedicated software module for bellows and grommets is based on a FEM shell solver developed by the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre and delivers fast simulation times. The module offers possibility to create and import motions, analyze reaction forces, von Mises stress, and distance to surrounding geometries.
