FEMPLY

AeroFEM is selling partner of PlySim Analysis Services for FEMPLY.

FEMPLY is a Composite Ply-Based Modelling and Post-processing tool fully integrated into Siemens' FEMAP Pre/Post-processor offering fast, efficient and simple definition of complex component layups, post-processing to advanced composite laminate and sandwich panel failure theorems and automated reporting of layups, plies and bill of materials.

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
  • Automatically re-map existing plies onto a new mesh or after mesh refinement
  • Import Plies, Materials and Properties from other FEMPLY layup files
  • Ply definitions are unrestricted by interior holes etc.
  • FEMPLY uses FEMAP's Global Ply functionality for easy post-processing
  • Import Global Plies from legacy models

Ply 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 ot the component

Advanced Failure Theorem Post-Processing

  • Robust Post-Processing to Hill, Hoffmann, Tsai-Wu, Max Stress, Max Strain, Puck, Cuntze, LaRC02 and User-Defined failure theorems
  • Inverse Reserve Factors
  • 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
  • Layered Stress / Strain Visualisation Tools

Fatigue Damage Summation and Failure Indices

  • A Miners damage summation with calculation of linear fatigue failure indices
  • Critical Ply, Component and Fibre angle vectors with results by layer and Global Ply

Laminate, Bill of Materials and Failure Calculation Reporting

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