FLIP programs for Overseas MembersFLIP programs for Overseas Members

FLIP support programs provided by FLIP Consortium

The following support programs are available free of charge for the Overseas Members. The support programs provide basic functions for mesh-generation for input data and animation from output data of FLIP program.

 FLIPGEN  Mesh generator of input data for FLIP ROSE 2D
Project file (*.flp) output by FLIPGEN in English version is not compatible with project file (*.flp) output by FLIPGEN in Japanese version.
 FLIPSIM  Support program for determining parameters for multiple spring element for FLIP ROSE 2D
 FLIPCSIM  Support program for determining parameters for cocktail glass model element for FLIP ROSE 2D
 FLIP2DtoMAVS  Conversion program of spatial output data of FLIP ROSE 2D to the format of MicroAVS* (for animation and visualization)
 FLIP3DtoMAVS  Conversion program of spatial output data of FLIP ROSE 3D to the format of MicroAVS* (for animation and visualization)
 FLIPHIST  Post processer for extracting time histories/hysteresis data from the output data of FLIP ROSE 2D&3D
 FLIPSECT  Post processor for extracting spatial distribution data at a designated time step from the output data of FLIP ROSE 2D&3D
 FLIPMESH   Mesh generator of input data for FLIP ROSE 3D with limited function
  FILECONV  Post processor for converting format of time histories/hysteresis loops output by FLIP ROSE 2D&3D (including the format compatible with excel)


Note on associated programs of FLIP program (pre-/post-processing programs)

Pre-/post processing programs with functions or features similar to the above associated programs of FLIP program may be sold by member companies of FLIP Consortium. Those similar programs have been developed and sold by the member companies on their own responsibility. FLIP consortium has not nor will not be involved in development and sale of those programs by the member companies.


※MicroAVS*, a general post-processor for animation and visualization of 2D and 3D simulation results is commercially available from Cybernet Systems Co., Ltd. Although the FLIP Consortium has no involvement in development of MicroAVS*, MicroAVS* can be purchased with a relatively reasonable price (in the order range of 100,000 yen ) and has a certain level of reliability and convenience in use, and thus the programs for converting spatial output data of FLIP ROSE 2D or FLIP ROSE 3D to the format of MicroAVS* are available (see the list of program above).

For the Overseas Members the special discount rate of MicroAVS* is applicable for sale by Cybernet Systems Co., Ltd. To order MicroAVS*, please contact Customer Service of FLIP Consortium "e_info@flip.or.jp".

*MicroAVS is a trade mark registered by CYBERNET SYSTEMS CO., LTD.

For more information about MicroAVS, please visit the CYBERNET SYSTEMS CO., LTD.'s website. (Click here ) You can also download the MicroAVS trial version from the website.
