The latest release of Siemens’ Femap software increases engineering productivity in product development simulation and analysis due to significant enhancements in data handling and graphic performance.
Version 11 (Femap 11) speeds data access by up to twenty five times and reduces memory usage by up to 80 percent, delivering a smaller more manageable model file. In addition, dynamic rotation of large, complex models is at least five times faster than the previous version. As a result of these, and several other enhancements, engineers can speed finite element analysis while maintaining product quality and performance. Femap, an offering of Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business unit, is the world’s leading pre- and post-processor for engineering finite element analysis (FEA) running on the Windows operating system.
Engineering productivity is further supported in Femap 11 through the creation of geometry from a finite element mesh when no underlying geometry is available. This simplifies modification and enables legacy finite element models that previously took hours to update to now be done in minutes.
Femap version 11 ships with NX Nastran 8.5 and extends support of NX Nastran, further tightening the integration between the pre- and postprocessor and solver.
