• The New Year is here and along with it comes a new release of Simcenter Femap – v2022.1. You might have already seen the official releases from Siemens or the ubiquitous ‘new features’ webinars on YouTube, but we want to present something a bit different. Since we've had this software in our hands for a while (one of the benefits of beta-testing), we would like to share the features that we find the most useful as practicing engineers.

  • Bringing FEA in-house is a critical part of building a more complete digital twin for your products. However, it can be a daunting task when suppliers and customers are working with a constantly changing mix of CAD platforms and analysis requirements. In this edition of our Xcelerator Lunch series, we will show you how Simcenter Femap can help you share data and collaborate in the design and analysis of engineered products, from consumer goods to aerospace components.

    Now available on-demand. This presentation was initially held on January 12th, 2022.

  • If you’re an experienced finite element analyst, you know that hex meshing is golden but creating a well-structured brick is a skilled craft. If you’re new to the game, you’re probably asking “why suffer for a hex mesh?” and then “How do I develop these skills?”. In this online seminar, we are going to cover theory, fundamentals, and the newest techniques to make it faster. 

  • In this on-demand technical seminar, we take the grand tour of the PostProcessing Toolbox. Any experienced Simcenter Femap user will know their way around the Toolbox, but it is a worthwhile talking point because it’s always changing and improving. 

  • Introducing the world of automation accessible through FEMAP’s Application Programming Interface (API).

  • This webinar on Simcenter Femap discusses how to idealize solid geometry into efficient numerical models that are quick to run and can generate accurate results.

    Anyone can take an object, mesh it, apply some boundary conditions and, with a click-of-a-mouse, generate some colors. However, it’s a bit more challenging to transform a mishmash of color into a verified and accurate simulation.

  • Based upon your interest in Femap, I thought you might like to find out more about the latest updates in Femap 2020.1. Watch this short video to see the new geometry editing enhancements.

    With every release, the Femap development team seeks to update and streamline Femap’s simulation processes and version 2020.1 is no exception. Keep up to date with the latest additions to the product in this release and see how they can help you with your simulation projects.


  • This Femap on-demand Technical Seminar is focused on modeling efficiency. As a simulation engineer, where do you spend your time? If you’re like us, you spend it in pre-processing, from geometry to meshing to BC’s. 

    We have learned through the years that not all workflows are created equal, and it is easy to get trapped into a workflow, that may not be the most efficient for your model construction. Although new users will find this seminar useful, it is really tailored to highlight the quickest and fastest workflow methods toward model creation. 

  • One of the most powerful capabilities of Simcenter Femap is the ability to organize and present modeling data through a variety of methods. This technical on-demand online seminar demonstrates how to use blanking, groups, and the draw/erase tool to quickly and easily organize your model.

  • In this on-demand technical webinar, we demonstrate surface modeling and plate meshing in Simcenter Femap, focusing on going from 3-D CAD to 2-D surfaces, and then to a beautiful quad-dominant mesh.

    The goal: combine our tried-and-true workflows and the newest Femap features to make the process of generating quality plate meshes quick and easy as possible. We want to share with you how the latest edition of Simcenter Femap can make this process efficient and get you that “quad” you have always deserved.

  • Buckling occurs when the structure becomes unstable and can no longer resist the applied load. Typically, this type of behavior occurs in structures under high compressive load: classic examples are submersibles and load bearing towers. Linear buckling theory takes into effect the very real physical mechanism of stress stiffening due to tensile loads or by reducing the stiffness due to compressive axial loads. This differential stiffness is a function of the geometry and applied loads.

  • What Applied CAx clients say about our Simcenter Support


    Stratolaunch logo

    Adrian and Applied CAx consistently get back to me within a few hours with helpful tips or insights. Engineers know that you can't extend a deadline because your FEA support was late in getting back to you. This is why I truly appreciate the level of support Applied CAx provides... They are an excellent resource and I’m glad to have their support.
