FEMAP tutorials, videos, seminars, and resources


Sometimes it’s the simple things that make life easier and so, this webinar provides a grab-bag of tips, tricks and new features in FEMAP v11.4. Plus we look at the top 10 things we love about FEMAP.

This seminar should provide useful for everybody from new users to FEMAP veterans. We presented this live online seminar on Thursday, August 3, 2017

In this technical seminar, we look at how to extract weld line stresses and forces. Our assumption is that a post-weld heat treatment has been performed and that the residual stress state in the weld zone is quite low.

To illustrate this importance, we provide an FEA simulation of how residual stresses develop in a welded T-joint as it cools down to room temperature. Please don’t get your hopes up that this seminar will be the definitive work on weld modeling and analysis, the topic is just too broad to cover in an hour or even in a week of lectures. What we will show is our best practices at Predictive Engineering from ASME to Blodgett's.

The FEMAP development team has been doing some amazing work lately and we would like to share it with you in this seminar focused on FEMAP v11.3.2. Hopefully it'll provide some start-to-finish analysis work flows while covering a variety of new FEMAP features.

Response spectrum analysis is widely used for the design and assessment of structures that are subject to earthquakes or shock events. The reason we want to use a response spectrum is that it allows us to analyze transient events (time based events) without having to review hundreds or thousands of results sets. In essence, it allows us to assess the maximum dynamic response (stress, acceleration, velocity or displacement) of a structure using a very simple analysis technique (normal modes). Moreover all of this goodness can be had by only having to interrogate one (1) output set.

This tutorial will walk you through the theoretical background of response spectrum analysis and how to actually implement it within FEMAP & NX Nastran.

Welcome to our video-and-PDF tutorial for new and experienced FEMAP users.

In our tips & tricks video we'll show how to run a FEMAP model. We’ll go through an analysis of a pipe clamp parasolid, from importing geometry to viewing results. Every model you do in FEMAP will go through a similar workflow with differences depending upon your needs.

Additionally our PDF guide will provide clear and concise instructions for installing and configuring FEMAP v11.3. We'll walk through some basic modeling and analysis techniques while sprinkling in new features and some classic tips and tricks.

Next, we'll tackle an assembly with advanced modeling, meshing and post processing techniques.
