  • Understanding how Femap manages the View Window
  • Stress visualization (Post Processing):
    • Solid Elements–nodal versus centroid stresses
    • Plate Elements–top/bottom & nodal averaging
    • Beam Elements–Max Combined = von Mises
  • Validation of Stress Results - If it looks good it is good
  • Using the Free-Body-Diagram (FBD)

This tutorial is taken from our online seminar held on October 21, 2010, led by the ever-entertaining George Laird, principal mechanical engineer for Applied CAx.
