Article Preview

The finite element model of a folded parachute is established in this paper. The dynamic change of structure and flow field during the parachute inflation process is obtained based on Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) coupling calculation. The accuracy of results is verified by wind tunnel tests. The present work is significant for improving parachute performance analysis, and also can be referenced by other fabrics analysis.
