VPS Explicit - Airbag Folding with SIM-FOLDER

Learn about and understand the possibilities of airbag folding simulation. Learn to set up and perform a folding simulation step by step with a simplified airbag. Use the variety of folding tools of the SIM-FOLDER database and learn how to create new folding tools easily. Learn to parameterize the folding steps and use them in a chained process.
Engineers who have already gathered experience in crash- and airbag simulation.

For simulation in vehicle safety, the use of airbag models has been standard for a long time. In most cases, models defined with the uniform-pressure option are sufficient. The growing requirements for out-of-position load cases, the deployment of side airbags, and the investigation of the opening behavior of cover flaps make it essential to enable a numerical description of the gas dynamics inside the airbag. This is where the Finite Point Method (FPM), a CFD method developed by ESI, comes into play. Participants will learn the basics as well as possible procedures for modeling airbag systems. Theory and practical applications introduce the function and use of the individual VPS/PAM-SAFE options. The course covers the construction of simple, basic airbag models up to the extension of the models to be able to represent the flow behavior of the airbag gas in detail. Visual-CRASH for PAM and Visual-Viewer are used for pre-and post-processing.
