Simcenter Simulation: How to be a Simcenter Femap Expert

October 20, 2023

Looking to build expertise in FEA? Finite element analysis (FEA) is a powerful tool for solving complete engineering problems. In this on-demand presentation, Applied CAx founder Dr. George Laird shares some of the best ways to improve your FEA skills, whether you’re a beginner or an advanced user of Simcenter Femap.


Finite element analysis (FEA) is a powerful tool for solving complete engineering problems. However, building expertise in a skill set — whether it’s carpentry, learning to be an electrician, or how to design a rocket — relies upon having a solid foundation to leverage or “know what you know.” While it may sound trivial, it often trips up the best of us.

Applied CAx founder Dr. George Laird has over 20 years of using Simcenter Femap. In this brief seminar, he shares his experience in building expertise with Simcenter Femap, and insights into his learning process. He also delves into the foundation of Femap and discuss what makes it tick from a fundamental perspective, how to leverage its tool set with some simulation examples, and speaks about its development roadmap from today (v2306.1) and its future.

Who’s it for?

  • Users new to Simcenter Femap that would like to learn about its foundation
  • Inquisitive simulation engineers who would like to sharpen up their skill sets
  • Experienced Femap users who would like to keep abreast of the ever-changing software landscape
