Femap version 10 software is a PC-based CAE modeling solution and the finite element analysis (FEA) component of the Velocity Series portfolio from Siemens PLM Software. It is said to help users create FEA models from CAD data easily and quickly through new meshing features. Also, it provides pre- and post-processing benefits to CAE analysts.
The software is designed to efficiently create accurate models. The updated software introduces new meshers because FE meshing is central to the simulation process. It also automates current meshing technology while adding interactive meshing with live-model and element-checking functionality. Remeshing and mesh-quality functionality are centralized within the user interface to improve work flows and make it easier to consistently and accurately produce CAE models for analysis, the company says. The software is also designed to mesh shell models faster. A new mid-surfacing method simplifies and speeds shell model creation for sheet metal structures.
The software is integrated with NX Nastran and both support 64-bit Windows. This enables access to random access memory (RAM) for pre-processing and solving multi-million node models. The update provides strengthened NX Nastran solver integration support, including axisymmetric quad and tria elements, weld and fastener extensions and linear and glued contact extensions.
