FEMAP tutorials, videos, seminars, and resources

This technical seminar will provide the background theory on normal modes (i.e., eigenvalue, natural frequency) analysis and then walk through the process for performing a vibration analysis from normal modes to modal frequency (sine sweep) to PSD to Direct Transient analysis.

As we know, covering this whole topic would take more than just an hour. We have some suggested readings and can point you toward additional resources for those that want more theory.

It has been a while since we have done our basic "Welcome to Femap" seminar and with the rollout of Femap v11.1.2 with NX Nastran v9.1, it was time. This seminar covers how we get the most from Femap in our modeling efforts. It covers the classics of working with Panes, Model Organization and Visualization, Setting Preferences for Ease-of-Use and Working with Toolbars. We also do some basic model building and demonstrate some of our favorite tips and tricks to make your analysis speed along.

This is an all-level technical seminar from which we hope new and advanced users will be able to take away something useful.

We have condensed down our best modeling practices and recommendations into this 50 minute seminar. It covers how we verify our models for consulting clients and provides a template on how someone new to FEA can proceed safely in creating and analyzing a structure.

Many of our practices may sound routine and commonplace, but over the years we have not found it to be the case in the industrial FEA workplace. Although we may not cover every check known to FEA kind we believe that if one follows the guidelines given in this seminar one can avoid 95% of the problems that we have encountered within our own modeling work and that we have seen via technical support assistance.
