Femap with NEi Nastran
Integrating tightly with NEi Nastran, this combination provides significant additional functionality for Nastran users. This includes advanced capabilities for composites engineering and analysis with tools for advanced failure criteria for first ply failure like Puck and LaRC02 and Progressive Ply Failure Analysis (PPFA™) for simulation of behavior beyond first ply failure. Automated Impact Analysis (AIA™) provides sophisticated simulation for drop tests and implicit impact studies. Productivity tools like Automated Surface Contact Generation (ASCG™) and Automated Edge Contact Generation (AECG™) help in industries with models having large shell like structures as found in ship building and automotive. See the Key Features of NEi Nastran for a full itemization of distinctive features.

Femap is compatible with a full complement of highly regarded implicit and explicit FEA and CFD solvers including NEi, NX, and MSC Nastran; LS Dyna; Maya TMG-Flow and TMG-Thermal; Abaqus; and ANSYS. The ability to work with such a variety and scope of professional FEA and CFD solvers is a major advantage of Femap. This solver independent capability assures engineers that with Femap, they will be able to model and generate results for linear and nonlinear structural stress, deformation, modal analysis, thermal, heat transfer, impact, crash, fluid flow, multiphysics, aero elasticity, optimization, rotor dynamics and other engineering problems.
