Why Simcenter Femap Standalone?


Your FEA software should be cost-effective and easy to use but with the power to model the toughest problems. Femap delivers just that—affordable high-performance FEA modeling for the engineering desktop. It is recognized as the world's leading CAD-independent Windows-native pre- and post-processor for advanced engineering finite element analysis.

Key features

CAD independent
Femap is CAD and solver-independent and leverages the Parasolid® modeling kernel. This allows direct access to Parasolid data for surface and solid modeling in addition to advanced geometric tools necessary for accessing non-Parasolid geometry.

Comprehensive meshing and modeling
From advanced beam modeling, mid-surface extraction and hex meshing to robust CAD import and idealization, Femap gives you unparalleled model control and flexibility with a broad range of loads, materials, analysis types.

Multiple solver support
Simcenter Femap provides in-depth, high-quality support for industry standard solvers, including the popular and proven Simcenter NASTRAN, MSC NASTRAN, Abaqus, ANSYS, LS-DYNA, MSC Marc, ADINA and TMG.

Extensive visualization and postprocessing
Efficiently evaluate simulation results to understand how to improve your designs and communicate results to the broader development team.
