Femap
Femap (Finite Element Modeling And Postprocessing) is an engineering
Femap
analysis program sold by Siemens PLM Software that is used to build finite
element models of complex engineering problems ("pre-processing") and view Developer(s) Siemens PLM
solution results ("post-processing"). It runs on Microsoft Windows and Software
provides CAD import, modeling and meshing tools to create a finite element Operating system Windows XP,
model, as well as postprocessing functionality that allows mechanical Windows Vista,
engineers to interpret analysis results. The finite element method allows Windows 7
engineers to virtually model components, assemblies, or systems to determine Type Computer
behavior under a given set of boundary conditions, and is typically used in the Aided
design process to reduce costly prototyping and testing, evaluate differing Engineering
designs and materials, and for structural optimization to reduce weight. (CAE) software

History
1985 - ESP founded by George Rudy and Femap originally developed as a pre- and postprocessor to Nastran.
1999 - ESP acquired by SDRC
2001 - SDRC acquired by EDS
2004 - Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software suite spun off to form UGS
2007 - UGS acquired by the Automation & Drives Division of Siemens and Siemens PLM Software formed

Femap product development continues as a CAD neutral and solver independent application. Also it is available bundled
with a number of Siemens PLM solvers, including NX Nastran, Advanced Non-Linear Solver, Thermal/Advanced Thermal
Solver, and Flow Solver.[1] As a standalone utility Femap is typically used with independent solvers such as ADINA, NEi
Nastran, LS-DYNA, ANSYS or Abaqus.

Application
Femap is used in a number of industries, including aerospace [2] and marine.

Add-ons
SDC Verifier enhances Femap with a new functionality. Together they provide an accepted and sound solution for the
verification of constructions according to Structural Design Standards. SDC Verifier uses Femap as the pre-processor for
the generation of a model and its graphical interface to visualize the results.
