(FEA) software that is used to simulate and analyze the behavior of complex engineering systems and structures.
Femap is CAD-independent and can access geometry data from all major CAD systems. It can virtually model components, assemblies or systems and determine the behavioral response for a given operating environment. With the digital simulation capabilities of Femap, you can improve your product’s performance and reliability.
Import CAD models and use them as the basis for the simulation model. Leverage the Parasolid modeling kernel to access Parasolid data for surface and solid modeling.
Work with imported CAD data to identify, edit, modify and clean up complex 3D geometry. Femap can automatically remove or suppress unwanted small features not required for analysis.
Take full control of geometry meshing through a set of toolboxes that enable meshes to be modified and edited interactively, while simultaneously providing element quality feedback.
Femap is solver-neutral and provides in-depth pre- and post-processing support for all of the main commercial solvers, including NX Nastran, Ansys, LS-DYNA, Abaqus and TMG.
“We were able to import the geometry into Femap and very quickly produce different finite element models. Then we ran a number of analyses that gave the customer the answers they needed in time for the design review. With Femap and NX Nastran, we can provide that kind of turnaround.”
Femap is an advanced engineering simulation software program that creates finite element analysis models of complex engineering products and systems, and displays solution results. Femap can virtually model components, assemblies or systems and determine the behavioral response for a given operating environment.
Femap can access geometry from all major CAD systems including Pro/Engineer, CATIA, NX (Unigraphics), Solid Edge, SolidWorks, and AutoCAD. After you import CAD data into Femap you can prepare the model for analysis using the easy geometry locator which will detect and display troublesome entities. Femap can completely remove troublesome entities, such as silvers, with the geometry cleanup tools or by suppressing them.
Using Femap’s digital simulation capabilities you can:
- Predict and improve product performance and reliability
- Reduce time-consuming and costly physical prototyping and testing
- Evaluate different designs and materials
- Optimize your designs and reduce material usage
