Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is the simulation of a physical phenomenon using a numerical mathematic technique referred to as the Finite Element Method, or FEM. Engineers can use these simulations to reduce the number of physical prototypes and run virtual simulations on a comprehensive digital twin to optimize their designs.

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. Simcenter Femap can help you share data and collaborate in the design and analysis of engineered products, from consumer goods to aerospace components. 

Femap is part of the Simcenter branch of the Siemens Xcelerator Portfolio of engineering software. In this presentation, Adrian highlights its agnostic nature and how it plays well with a wide variety of geometry and analytic data types, as well as some sample workflows importing geometry, exporting analysis decks, and post processing simulation results.
