ELESTO is a 20 stress/strain solver with a fully integrated 2D CAD system, on-line help, multiple material options, and numerous post-processing functions such as displacement, stress/strain, vector components, and tensor analysis. Applications include stress in mechanical and electrical equipment; thermal stress in sensors, actuators, motors, and cooling systems; stress of parts and assemblies subject to electrical or mechanical loading; and automotive components.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
