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.
Structural Analysis Software for any size and type of structure. In accordance to Eurocode.
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 and many types of dynamic analysis, such as seismic, footfall and time history analysis.
With FEM-Design structural analysis software, you can collaborate in design workflows including both 3D BIM Integrations (IFC, SAF, Revit and Tekla) and 2D CAD-based programs (DWG and DXF). The latest FEM 22 release connects to IDEA StatiCa for steel joint design.
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.
