What is Femap?
Femap is the world's leading CAD-independent Windows-native pre- and post-processor for advanced finite element analysis (FEA). It provides engineers and analysts with an FEA modeling solution to handle even the most complex tasks easily, accurately, and affordable.
Modules and Packages
Designed specifically as a native Windows application, Femap offers comprehensive analysis functionality that is easy to use and quick to learn. Key features promoting usability and efficiency are:
• dynamic viewing
• color and screen management
• multiple model access
• multiple undo steps
• up to date windows look and feel
User interface panes include Model Info and Entity Editor that allow direct access to analysis modeling data without having to navigate a menu system. An efficient on-screen working environment reduces training overhead and allows engineers to maintain maximum productivity even when Femap is used on a occasional basis.
You can leverage the design model in your 3D CAD system by importing the CAD model diretly into Femap and using it as the basis for the simulation model. Femap offers neutral CAD suport that enables analysts and engineers to import CAD data reliably from a wide variety of sources. Femap Leverages the Parasolid modeling kernel and solid modeling, and provides robust advanced geometric tools necessary to access non-Parasolid geomtery. Femap is fully associative with Solid Edge.
CAD models often contain problematic geometry which while are not important for the CAD modelling considerations can hinder simulation model creation. Femap works well with imported CAD data and offers interactive geometry clean up, removal and modification tools to identify and heal potentially problematic geometry with ease. Femap also has the ability to automatically clean up geometry and remove or suppress unwanted small features not required for analysis.
A major strength of Femap is solver neutrality. Femap offers access to all the main commercial analysis solvers with the ability to handle data peculiarities of the individual solver types easily and efficiently within its database, and without having to manually change solver preferences. Full access to all supported solver types is available within the base Femap module precluding the need to purchase any additional add-on modules.
One of the main benefits from using simulation in the design proces comes form the ability to test and validate the design virtually on a computer. Virtual testing can significantly reduce the need to manufacture and test physical protoypes which is time consuming and costly. With faster validation comes a faster design process which helps you get your products to market faster.
Ease of use
Femap includes an impressive array of versatile modeling, display and visualization tools to aide finite model creation and verification prior to analysis. These options include, model transparency, clipping plane, dynamic graphics viewing, and interactive view options.
Femap incorporates automatic 3D solid and surface meshers capable of producing top quality meshes the first time. Improve and update meshes on the go with the meshing toolbox.
Automatic Geometry Preparation
Femap's new automatic solid geometry cleanup capability can remove problematic geometry detail from a CAD model easily and with minimal effort, preventing the geometry in a form that can be meshed in one pass.
Included with the base module is, linear static analysis, normal modes analysis, heat transfer analysis, basic nonlinear analysis, buckling analysis, connectors and weld elements, linear contact, glued connection, and bolt preloads.
Femap offers a full-featured BASIC development environment in a separate window. You can create custom programs that automate repetitive tasks, search model or results data, or programs that transfer model information to Word or Excel to create customized reports. The BASIC engine is fully OLE/COM compliant.
Femap offers a wide variety of results processing tools to enable quick and efficient understanding of the behaviour of the system under analysis. Results from the Data Table allow advanced data handling and results combinations to be made after the analysis has completed.
Below is a table that shows the modules that come with base femap and the ones that are extensions.
