IPS Bellows & Grommets
Simulate flexible, moving bellows and grommets with fine structures using a fast FEM-based approach.
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.
