The simulation software FIDYST is a highly efficient software in order to simulate elastic fibers in turbulent fluid flows. On the basis of the theory of Cosserat-Rods FIDYST models the dynamics of elastic, line shaped objects in a very general way.
Hence, there is a broad spectrum of different applications for FIDYST. Of particular importance are the applications of FIDYST in the production processes of technical textiles. Not till the Fraunhofer ITWM has developed a turbulent air drag model it is possible to simulate the fiber dynamics in real industrial applications.
