FEMAP tutorials, videos, seminars, and resources


Model organization is an incredibly important but often overlooked aspect of FE analysis. With the increasing size and complexity of models it is more important than ever to be able to create, navigate and post process models in a fast efficient manner. Groups and Layers are effective ways to organize and manipulate models during construction, analysis and post processing.

This seminar will cover a variety of uses for both layers and groups in constructing geometry, meshing, solving, and post processing along with the changes to the commands introduced in V12. It will cover the differences between groups and layers and when it may be beneficial to use one over the other.

A simulation engineer’s review of FEA bolt modeling practices from basic to complex. We cover standard bolt modeling techniques and more advanced techniques to incorporate bolt preload. Comments are added on pros and cons of the various techniques and when it might be necessary to include bolt preload for fatigue analysis.
