Whether you’re a first-time Finite Element Analysis user or someone with 10+ years of experience, our Simcenter Femap and Simcenter Nastran workshops provide the principals and modeling fundamentals to get new users up and going.

This Simcenter Femap training course taught by Predictive Engineering and Applied CAx takes the user from the ground floor through FEA best practices. It then moves into advanced subjects dealing with manifold and non-manifold surface modeling, detailed plate meshing, the importance of mesh quality and tet versus hex meshing. The optional API addon finishes with a focus on customization and automation using Excel and Femap’s own programming interface.

The course is fast-paced and follows a workshop format with theory, practice, and Q&A sessions. Sessions are created and managed by our talented CAE team, experienced simulation engineers who have used Femap & Simcenter Nastran on a daily basis for longer than they can remember. Attendees will receive information on where to find free Femap training resources, and will have a chance to get answers to their FEA questions.

Cost: $2450 (optional online API training course, add’l $245)
