CEDREM presents KTex Family and HUByx

  • Integrated in HyperWorks™ Tools
  • Simulation of  Composite Process Integrating 
    Manufacturing Constraints (Weave, Lay-up, Winding)
  • Automatic Linear Properties of Composite in Bulk and Block Format


  • Industrial weave realistic geometry and mesh
  • Customized weave with weaving loom parameters
  • Automatic modeling in Hypermesh, including contact generation, materials and properties attribution


  • Identify shape of ply during lay-up process
  • Project material properties (Vf and yarn orientation) on macro scale mesh


  • Updated yarn orientation for simulation
  •  Define real pattern of winding integrating yarn size
  • Integrate size of yarn
  •  Generate macro scale material properties


  • Calculation of homogenized properties for any 2D and 3D weave
  • Automatic generation of BULK and BLOCK cards
  • Possibiliy to create customized weaves through interlacement map


  • A finite element model of the human body simulating all the bones and organs,
  • A model also of the internal fluid in between the bones and organs, enabling the propagation of pressure wave inside the body.
  • HUByx is a first step in measuring the propagation of potentially lethal pressure waves inside the human body.
