ENDURASIM has released Femap 10.2 with NX Nastran 7.1 designed to improve productivity by streamlining the meshing process with extensions to the interactive Meshing Toolbox.

Femap is a PC-based finite ele ment modeling (FEM) compo nent of the Velocity Series port folio of PLM software.

Version 10.2 is also said to bring significant performance improvements when post-pro cessing results data and new methods of visualising beam ele ment results that help speed results comprehension.

A new Topology Optimisation module is now available that can suggest the best design for a given set of boundary conditions.

Femap 10.2 ships with NX Nastran 7.1 and extends support of NX Nastran with edge to glue connection support, and NX Nastran in general with extend ed support for model checking, frequency response and rigid elements. There is also a new forced response capability inside Femap.

New Meshing Toolbox tools and capabilities include Mesh Surface and Geometry Editing and Feature Editing plus post- processing acceleration factors x20 in speed for complex output processing operations.
