DIS (Dynamic Interactions Simulator)



DIS can be used in applications that involve a mechanical system that includes solid bodies, fluid flow, fluid-structure interaction, actuators and control systems. Typical application fields include:
  1. V and flat belt-drives for automotive, elevator and material handling (conveyor) applications.
  2. Timing belts.
  3. Chains drives.
  4. Gears boxes (which include spur, helical and bevel gears).
  5. Cams.
  6. Linkages.
  7. Robotics: robot arms and full human-like robots.
  8. Full ground vehicles.
  9. Full internal combustion engines engines.
  10. Continuous variable transmission systems (CVTs) including belt, chain and toroidal types.
  11. Industrial machines.
  12. Appliances such as washing machines and dryers.
  13. Modeling structures, buildings and vehicle response to earthquakes and impact.
  14. Earth moving equipment including backhoes and bulldozers.
  15. Full human body model including modeling motion and injury due to high loads/accelerations from impact or blasts.
  16. Wing flutter and flow around the landing gear for fixed wing airplanes.
  17. Rotorcrafts (rotor/drive-train dynamics coupled with fluid-flow around the propeller).
  18. Flapping wing airplanes.
  19. Wind turbines fluid-structure interaction.
  20. Fluid-multibody dynamics interaction for flight of birds and insects and swimming of marine animals
  21. Fluid-multibody dynamics interaction for the flow of blood through the heart and flexible vessels.
  22. Sloshing in liquid filled tanks carried by trucks, airplanes, marine tankers and satellites.
  23. Parachute deployment.
  24. Inflatable structures and airbags.
  25. Fluid flow around submarines, ships and floating platforms.
  26. Stage/store separation for rockets/airplanes.
  27. Tire/track soft terrain (mud, snow, sand and wet pavement) interaction.
  28. Spray and Electron-Beam Physical Vapor Deposition (EVPVD) coating processes.
  29. Molecular dynamics.
