How to generate finite element mesh for folded airbags


This work presents a novel algorithm for generating a geometric mesh of an airbag after a series of folds are defined on it, for use in crash simulations. The process of airbag folding is simulated as a series of geometric transformations to the airbag mesh, which is modeled as a stack of connected planar layers. Along with these transformations… (More)
