Increase CAE Productivity with Femap 11

The newest version of Siemens’ Femap software, Version 11, was released this year. Users are already reporting measurable benefits from the upgrade which allows for expedited finite element analysis without sacrificing superior product and performance quality. With the creation of geometry from a finite element mesh when no underlying geometry is available, modification is simplified and enables legacy finite element models to be updated in minutes, not hours. Engineering productivity will be noticeably improved in product development simulation and analysis because of these capabilities and also because of significant enhancements in data handling and graphic performance.

Time to market can be reduced with the features of this new release. A beta tester reported reopening of a large analysis result file as being 200 times faster. Users of the Femap 11 release can expect:

  • Significantly increased data access speeds
  • Up to 80% reduced memory usage
  • Significantly reduced processing time
  • 5x faster dynamic rotation of large, complex models

Femap 11 is CAD independent and can access all geometry from major CAD systems including NX (Unigraphics), Solid Edge, Pro/Engineer, CATIA, SolidWorks, and AutoCAD. Companies can realize substantial savings by taking advantage of simulation capabilities with Femap 11.These financial savings along with the time-savings benefits fosters productivity while creating better product performance and reliability.
