FEMAP tutorials, videos, seminars, and resources



Brian, Adrian and the whole FEMAP support team have done a great job wrestling with user questions ever since v12 kicked in. One of the biggest sources of user head scratching has been dealing with layers and best methods for model organization. With that in mind we held a March webinar, and have since carved a series of 7 or so videos that deal with model flow and model organization. We hope you find these shorter segments helpful.

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.

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 covers 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 looks at the differences between groups and layers and when it may be beneficial to use one over the other.

Please be advised that FEMAP v12.0.1a is now available. FEMAP v12.0.1a addresses several issues, some of which were introduced in v12.0.1 and others which existed in both v12.0.1 and v12.0.

FEMAP v12.0.1a is 100% licensing and database compatible with v12.0 and v12.0.1.

Our team at Applied CAx took a look at this update and have determined this update as not something mandatory but if you are using an older version and are ready to move to v12, it's a good fit.

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.
