FEMAP 2020.2.0 by Siemens Simcenter is an advanced engineering simulation software program used to create finite element analysis models of complex engineering products and systems and display the results of solutions. In fact, Femap can create components, assemblies or system models, and determine the behavior of a given operating system.
Siemens PLM Software pleased to announce the release of Simcenter Femap version 2020.2. This latest release provides a variety of improvements that will help your productivity across the simulation workflow.
Simcenter Femap is a finite element modeling and post-processing environment. It interacts with solvers such as Nastran to model physical behavior to assist in the drawing of conclusions about said behavior. Solvers typically require strict text file-based formatting of your analysis setup, which nobody does directly anymore. Instead, programs such as Femap are used to prepare those text file inputs to the solver using a combination of a modern graphical user interface built-in functions to automate tedious tasks.
Simcenter Nastran is a separate “solver” product that is usually bundled within Femap. Simcenter Nastran (formerly NX Nastran) is an actively-developed offshoot of the Nastran code base, but is one of the most common solvers for finite element analysis (FEA). Nastran is essentially the math behind FEA. As a pre-processor, Femap assists with building a model of a part, and then translates it into Nastran code. Nastran then computes the behavior. Following this, Femap reads the results and provides interpretation tools to facilitate the processing of output data. Oftentimes, the amount of information from the model is substantial, and Femap can enable a more rapid understanding of gross behavior.
