As analysis research, the effect of either height of bellows ends on the stress distribution has been proposed in the study. Rotation angle only is considered as a boundary condition. FEM solution for a u-shaped flexible tube under the action of angle of rotation is obtained. The design factor, convolution height of bellows ends, is considered for the simulation. The analysis is performed using the finite element analysis program. The maximum von-Mises stress and its reduction rate according to the height of bellows ends is compared respectively.
