Solid Edge Simulation solutions are based on the same fundamental underlying finite element modeling technology and use the NX Nastran solver as Femap, and are flexible enough to let you work the way you want to. Simulation, embedded in Solid Edge, significantly reduces the need for physical prototypes, thereby reducing material and testing costs, while saving design time.
Finite Element Analysis in Solid Edge
This optional, built-in Solid Edge application uses the same underlying geometry and user interface as all Solid Edge applications. Solid Edge Simulation is easy enough for any Solid Edge user who has a fundamental understanding of FEA principles, yet robust enough to service most of your analysis needs.
FloEFD for Solid Edge is the only frontloading computational fluid dynamics analysis tool that is fully embedded in Solid Edge. Frontloading CFD refers to the practice of moving CFD simulation early into the design process where it can help design engineers examine trends and eliminate less desirable design options.
Femap is an advanced engineering simulation application for creating, editing and importing/re-using mesh-centric finite element analysis models of complex products or systems. You can use Femap to model components, assemblies or systems and to determine the behavioral response for a given operating environment.
