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.

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 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.

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.

Design Modules in FEM-Design Structural Analysis Software

Discover all the design modules in FEM-Design with the required features for every type of construction material for your projects. Browse among various design and analysis possibilities and choose the perfect mix of FEM-design applications and design modules, to suit your structural engineering needs.

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.

Finite element analysis (FEA) of a masonry chimney to determine Young’s modulus

2023-02-03|Categories: Case Studies, FEM-Design|Tags: , , |

Finite element analysis (FEA) is a powerful tool that can be used to simulate the behavior of structures under different loads and conditions. In a recent study, a group of students used FEM-Design, to calculate the eigenfrequencies of a large chimney with the objective of isolating the stiffness of [...]
