AeroFEM is selling partner of PlySim Analysis Services for FEMPLY.


FEMPLY is a Composite Ply-Based Modelling tool fully integrated into Siemens' FEMAP Pre/ Post-processor offering gast, efficient and simple definition of complex component layups.


Developed by PlySim, a leading Composites Engineering Consultancy, FEMPLY is a versatile tool developed and used by Composite Engieneers on real-world projects in a wide range of markets.


Perpetual Node-locked and Network Floating licenses are available.




FEMPLY includes a large range of features to improve the Simplicity, Speed, Versatility and Reliability of Composite Pre and Post-processing:


  • Simple,intuitive user interface.
  • Edit multiple plies in one operation.
  • Completely integrated into FEMAP. No exporting to external programs required.
  • A single definition of Laminate Properties, Failure Theorem and Offsets can be applied all Composite Property sets.

  • Geometry Independent.

  • Automaticallyre-mapexistingpliesontoa newmeshoraftermesh refinement.
  • Import Plies, Materials and Properties from other FEMPLY layup files.

  • Ply definitions are unrestricted by interior holes etc.

  • FEMPLY Layup Files can be easily read,modified or written by in-house

  • FEMPLY uses FEMAP’s Global Ply functionality for easy post-processing.

  • Import Global Plies from legacy models.


Fly Draping Analyses and Flat Ply Shape Export


  • Accurately account for fibre angle deviation during the manufacture process.
  • Verify planned production processes.
  • Reduce the need for modifications or redesign late in the manufacturing process. 
  • Directly extract 2d CAD ply shapes for use in ply booklets or cutting patterns.
  • Enhance the accuracy and reproducibility of the component


Advanced Failure Theorem Post-Processing


  • Robust Post-Processing to Hill, Hoffman, Tsai-Wu, Max Stress, Max

    Strain, Puck, Cuntze, LaRC02 and User-Defined failure theorems.
  • Inverse ReservFactors.
  • Output vectors by Layer,GlobalPly and Maximum.
  • Critical Ply and Fibre Angle output vectors to quickly and easily identify critical areas.
  • Sandwich Stability Calculations for Skin Wrinkling, Shear Crimping and          Honeycomb Dimpling.
  • Failure Envelope Charting and Export. 



Laminate, Bill of Materials and Failure Calculation Reporting


  • Automated Mirosoft Word reporting of Failure Theorems, Failure Envelopes, Failure Indices and Critical Results
  • Bill of Material, Layup, Ply and Material Summary Reports including layup and ply application region images.
  • Sandwich Stability Reports including Failure Theorem summary, Failure Envelopes, Failure Indices and Critical Results.
