FEMAP tutorials, videos, seminars, and resources


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.

All finite element analysts know this experience – take a single piece of solid CAD geometry, auto-mesh it, apply the boundary and analyze the model. It will be quick, easy and you think you will have some results ready to document in time to leave the office at a reasonable hour… and then the model crashes and the goose chase begins. Sometimes the simplest analysis projects can suck up a ridiculous amount of time.

In this technical seminar, we want to get back to the basics and talk about why it’s not always so basic. This presentation will walk through the standard analysis workflow from geometry to stress results and take a look at some of the common pitfalls. Along the way, we'll share with you some of our time saving techniques. We'll be working with solid geometry and tetrahedral meshes as we explore geometry preparation, mesh quality, model verification tools and finally, some recommended post-processing practices.
