Q: Is UmbiliCAD capable of designing and analyzing thermoplastic hoses?

Α: UmbiliCAD has limited support for designing thermoplastic hoses. However, thermoplastic
may be modeled by a general element. The general element requires the following material properties
in order to model the hose:
-OD: Outer diameter of the hose
-ID: Inner diameter of the hose
-Mass: Mass per unit length
-EA: Axial stiffness
-EI: Bend stiffness
-Max. allowable tension or max. allowable elongation
-Max. allowable curvature or min. allowable bending radius
