New features and improvements in the newly released FEM-Design 19

We are very happy to announce that the new features in FEM-Design have been released. Major improvements and new features are implemented, from improved Documentation to a completely new design module for CLT panels, marking a milestone for FEM-Design.

FEM-Design 19 - is the latest and newest version of our structural analysis and design software. It includes significant changes into existing functionality, as well as a considerable number of brand new features - making FEM-Design better than ever. 

Improvements

FEM-Design 19 contains a significant number of changes and improvements. → Read more...

New features

A detailed description of the new features in FEM-Design 19. → Read more...

Parametric model

The parametric model is an editor module, where the user can create a parameterized model and use it as a template. The templates later can be imported into the Structure module with customized settings. → Read more...

Create a parametric template for models and quickly adjust the values to get various models and quick results. You can directly specify the number of truss divisions, the purlin or girder divisions and the structure automatically update according to the new parameters.

CLT Panels (Cross-laminated timber)

It is now possible to analyze and design Cross Laminated Timber not only as an orthotropic plate but with a completely new mechanical model based on the laminated shell theory. Take full control of your CLT panels and get results for the full panel or for each layer. Buckling check for laminated timber panels is now available with a new mechanical model that allows the verification in any direction specified by the user. → See and read more about CLT - panels

Timber Bar Fire Design

Fire design for timber bars is now available in FEM-Design 19. Timber bars can initially be protected from fire exposure by structural elements or fire protective claddings and it’s now possible to consider these effects in FEM-Design. All of the new fire calculations, including the charring depth and the design procedure, are implemented according to Eurocode. → Read more...

Documentation

The Documentation module has always been a cornerstone of the FEM-Design package and it is now even better than ever. In FEM-Design 19, the Documentation module is improved a lot. New functionalities and objects are implemented to speed up the process of documenting the project. The Wizard function allows you to automatically generate graphical windows and tables and choose what kind of elements and results you want to add to your report. → Read more...

API

A big new feature in FEM-Design 19 is that now it has a new and improved API functionality. Previously, the different functions in FEM-Design could be accessed by using the XML file format. To make this a lot easier we have created user-friendly toolboxes for Python, Dynamo, and Grasshopper. Here you can create the model, run the analysis and export results, all with easy-to-use functions. The program is accessed by different XML files that can be generated from scratch, modified or used as a template. This can be done in many different ways and with many different programming languages. This makes the API functionality in FEM-Design very versatile. → Read more...
