FEMAP tutorials, videos, seminars, and resources


This screen cast is taken from our online seminar held August 11, 2011.

This was part of our Femap Foundation Series of basic modeling techniques. One of the most powerful capabilities Femap has is the ability to organize and present modeling data via "blanking" or through Groups. This seminar showed you how to quickly and easily use blanking and groups to make your model organization easier and more effective.

This screen cast is taken from our online seminar held on February 17, 2011.

Topics include:

  • 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.

Topics include:
• Navigating the FEMAP Interface: Panes, Blanking, Visibility, etc.
• Workflow for Introductory Analyses: Solid, Plate and Beam
• Summary of Useful Tips and Tricks
