Structural Analysis Software | FEM-Design

FEM-Design is an advanced and intuitive structural analysis software. We support all aspects of your structural engineering requirements: from 3D modelling, design and finite element analysis (FEA) of concrete, steel, timber, composite, masonry and foundation structures. All calculations are performed to Eurocode standards, with some specific National annexes.

The quick and easy nature of FEM-Design makes it an ideal choice for all types of construction tasks, from single element design to global stability analysis of large buildings, making it the best practical program for structural engineers to use for their day to day tasks. Moreover, it helps bridge engineers with a dedicated module for designing road, railway, and pedestrian bridges.

Structural Analysis Software for any size and type of structure. In accordance to Eurocode.

Structural Analysis Software for any size engineering project

The FEM-Design Calculation Engine allows you to perform structural analysis of both simple, single elements, as well as complex spatial structures. These include static and stability analysis (such as imperfections), load combinations, construction stages, plastic analysis, and many types of dynamic analysis, such as seismic, footfall and time history analysis.

One of FEM-Design’s key features is its strong interoperability, facilitating seamless collaboration in various design workflows and with various project participants. It ensures smooth integration into the 3D BIM ecosystem (IFC, SAF, Revit, Archicad, Tekla, Allplan, IDEA StatiCa, etc.) and supports traditional CAD workflows with DWG and DXF formats.

Furthermore, FEM-Design supports automated Application Program Interfaces (API) with Grasshopper, Dynamo, XML, XLS and C#.

The unique user-friendly working environment is based on familiar CAD tools that make the model creation and editing the structure both simple and intuitive.

Another one of FEM-Design’s key features is its 3D Bridge module, tailored to analyse pedestrian, road, and railway bridges with moving load automation to calculate traffic load envelopes based on influence lines or surfaces, according to EN 1991-2 standards.

Benefits of using FEM-Design

  • The structural model is created easily in 3D with intuitive CAD-tools or imported from BIM software.

  • The finite element mesh is generated and optimised automatically.

  • The Auto Design feature helps choose the most efficient cross-section or reinforcement arrangement

  • Resultant and connection forces in shell elements are easily assessed.

  • Show results in a variety of 3D-graphs, contour lines, colour palettes or sections.

  • Create auto-updated project reports from within the built-in FEM-Design documentation module.

  • Utilise reinforced concrete more efficiently by using the elasto-plastic method.

  • Gain material savings and improved safety by analysing steel with plastic capacity.

  • Determine the most unfavourable load system and its position for road, railway, and pedestrian bridges according to Eurocode.
