FEMAP Tips&Tricks

 

Worst Element Visualization 

For model solid mesh quality evaluation and visual inspection of the worst elements the Meshing Toolbox, Locator and Search For, Elements, Quality options can be very helpful. Let’s see the video how it can be done.

 

 

Element Selection by Face

For selection of the FEA model entities many different tolls can be used in Femap. Selection of FEA entities (e.g. elements) for the model without geometry can be managed by Element Selection by Face. Let’s see the video how it can be done.

 

Entity ID Contouring

For verification of the FEA model many different visualization tools are used in Femap. For example, the assignment of the colors to the model Entity IDs gives possibility to quick check of the model entity numbers. Let’s see the video how it can be done. 

 

How to create Constraint Equations?

For definition of relationship between model nodal Degrees of Freedom (DOF) constraint equations (Nastran MPC Equations) can be created in Femap. Let’s see the video how it can be done. 

 

Saving Layouts and Views

For application of equation based loading e.g. hydro static pressure in the water tank, the variable load value can be defined and multiply by equation using under load application Advanced Load Methods, Equation command. Let’s see the video how it can be done. 

 

Equation Based Loading application

For application of equation based loading e.g. hydro static pressure in the water tank, the variable load value can be defined and multiply by equation using under load application Advanced Load Methods, Equation command. Let’s see the video how it can be done.

 

Non Structural Mass application

For simulation and evaluation of additional non-structural mass effects, Non Structural Mass value can be entered using Connect, NonStructural Mass Region… command. Let’s see the video how it can be done.

 

Solid Element Bolt Preload

Using definition of Bolt Region, it is easy to apply Bolt Preload while modelling of bolt connections. Let’s see the video how it can be done.

 

 

Result Set Processing using Data Surface

Using Data Surface, it is easy to create Result Sets for post-processing of solution results. Let’s see the video how it can be done.

 

Enveloping Results by Group

Using Groups and Model Merge commands you can easy evaluated/envelope the solution results. Let’s see the video how it can be done.

 

 

Using RBE3 Interpolation Elements

Using Interpolation RBE3 Element definitions it’s very easy to apply loads and constraints to the model. Let’s see the video how it can be done.
