Overview

Femap is recognized as the world’s leading CAD-independent Windows-native pre- and post-processor for advanced engineering finite element analysis (FEA). It provides engineers and analysts with an FEA modeling solution to handle even the most complex tasks easily, accurately and affordably. Femap has embodied the principles of power and simplicity for over 20 years and continues that focus today with a Windows-native graphical user interface and efficient workflows that simplify access to all Femap functionality and streamline the process of creating an accurate and representative simulation model.

Femap Features

Fluid dynamics simulation

Since the real-world performance of your product depends on how it interacts with fluids, either gases, liquids or a combination of both, you need to predict how those fluids behave, and to be ale to turn their influence to your product's advantage.

Battery Simulation

Digitally validate Li-ion cell design including geometrical cell specifications and cell performance. Extensive components of a battery cell are available, as well as a material database to support the user in its model development.

Structural Simulation

Understanding how a component or product assembly reacts under stress or vibration is critical in any industry, but as products and materials become increasingly complex, engineers need tools that go beyond linear statics analyses. Simcenter includes the structural solutions you need for a wide range of structural analysis problems within a single user environment. You no longer need one tool for linear statics, another to study fatigue, and yet another for nonlinear analysis.

Thermal Simulation

Understanding how a component or product assembly reacts under stress or vibration is critical in any industry, but as products and materials become increasingly complex, engineers need tools that go beyond linear statics analyses. Simcenter includes the structural solutions you need for a wide range of structural analysis problems within a single user environment. You no longer need one tool for linear statics, another to study fatigue, and yet another for nonlinear analysis.

Meshing

Thermal management is a major consideration for a wide range of products, including industrial machinery, automobiles and consumer electronics. The objective of any thermal management solution is to maintain a product’s temperature within a range that is optimal for performance. Accomplishing this may require the removal or addition of heat, either passively or in an actively managed fashion, and this can be evaluated using thermal simulation software

Optimization

Efficiently mesh your models using extensive modeling functions for automatic and manual mesh generation of 1D, 2D and 3D elements in addition to numerous techniques for the application of loads and boundary conditions. User-defined geometry edits, mesh and boundary conditions are all associated to the base design, which means when the base design geometry changes, you can rapidly update your model.

Pre / Postprocessing

How can I reduce material in a component or change its properties while ensuring it continues to meet performance targets? Femap delivers engineering optimization techniques that can help you answer these this question by systematically searching for the best design that satisfies certain criteria. Reduce component weight or find the right combination of parameters to improve product performance through comprehensive topology, geometry, and parameter optimization capabilities.

Simulation Automation & Scalability

Reduce the time you spend preparing analysis models, and spend more time evaluating results. Quickly move from multi-CAD geometry data to a complete, run-ready analysis model using unique tools for CAE geometry editing, comprehensive meshing, FE assembly management, multi-CAE solver environments, and fast simulation results post processing and reporting.
