Advanced FEA Simulation for complex systems

Femap enables simulation engineers to efficiently tackle design and performance evaluation challenges, leading to enhanced product quality and innovation.

Eliminate the need for physical prototypes

Femap allows engineers to quickly iterate through design alternatives and evaluate performance—without the time constraints associated with physical testing.

Develop innovative, high-quality products
with Femap

  • 01 Utilize an Advanced Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tool

    Femap serves as both the pre-processor and post-processor in the simulation process, while NX Nastran functions as the solver. This setup allows users to prepare models for analysis and interpret results with Femap, while NX Nastran efficiently handles the computational aspects and solves the complex mathematical equations that describe the physical behavior of the model under various conditions.

  • 02 Increase prediction accuracy

    Femap and NX Nastran provide highly-accurate predictions of how a product or structure will behave under various conditions, including stress, heat and vibration. It enables engineers to identify potential issues early in the design phase and make informed decisions to improve performance and reliability.

  • 03 Optimize designs

    Femap and NX Nastran enable simulation engineers to optimize designs by identifying areas of excessive stress, deformation or other undesirable behaviors. By iteratively refining the design based on simulation results, engineers will create products that are lighter, more durable and more cost-effective—faster.

  • 04 Reduce design risks

    Assess the performance of a design in diverse operating conditions and identify potential failure points before production begins. Mitigate the risk of costly design flaws and ensure a product meets performance requirements and regulatory standards.
