FEMAP with NX Nastran

The leading finite element solution for engineers for precise and complex finite element models in the field of statics and dynamics


FEMAP is the worldwide leading, CAD independent solution developed for Windows with pre- and postprocessor for efficient finite element analysis. Fast and precise analyses in the field of statics and dynamics can be conducted with the integrated NX Nastran solver. Additional modules can be acquired to analyze coupled simulations with thermal and flow analysis.

FEMAP with NX Nastran Module

The base module of FEMAP with NX Nastran includes a wide range of functions, which covers the requirements for the usual analysis tasks. Furthermore, the range of functions can be expanded with additional modules for NX Nastran or add-ons for FEMAP:

Basic analysis functions NX Nastran

  • Linear static analysis (incl. contact)
  • Modal analysis
  • Buckling
  • Heat conduction calculations (stationary and transient)
  • Nonlinear analysis
  • Welding analysis
  • Natural frequency analysis
  • Linear contact
  • Glued connections
  • Bolt pretensions

Advanced analysis functions NX Nastran

  • Dynamic response analysis
  • Advanced nonlinear calculations
  • Superelements
  • Direct matrix arithmetic programming (DMAP)
  • Structural optimisation
  • Rotordynamics
  • Thermal analysis- basic
  • Thermal analysis - advanced
  • Flow analysis
  • Aeroelasticity

FEMAP add-ons

The FEMPLY add-on expands the range of functions of FEMAP for composite materials and offers additional failure criteria. The SDC Verifier add-on adds advanced functions to FEMAP for verifying structures according to norms like Eurocode 3 or DIN 15018.
