CATIA V5 FEM

CATIA V5 FEM and Structural Analysis (FAX)

Overview

Today, companies need to control their development costs, while especially focusing on the costs of physical prototypes. They also need a solution that combines design and analysis in order to validate and optimize product development.

CATIA – FEM and Structural Analysis delivers a complete finite element modeling and analysis solution covering a wide range of structural analysis processes. Fully integrated within the CATIA design environment, it promotes seamless product design quality improvement.

Benefits

• 60 % improvement of the product design-analysis cycle time comparing to non integrated design-analysis solutions
• Generative and associative specification-driven solution for a rapid propagation of changes
• Ensures compliancy with company best practices thanks to integrated knowledge capabilities
• Accurate simulation of the product’s mechanical behavior
• Decreases the need for physical prototypes
• Promotes concurrent engineering
• Open to other solvers to address specific needs
• Scalable solution to perform complex computations on large models: up to 25 million degrees of freedom
• Accurate composite product behavior evaluation

Capabilities

• Single analysis and design environment avoiding errors and duplications
• Knowledge-based architecture
• Advanced stress, modal and dynamic analysis on any type of part or hybrid assembly
• Robust and advanced finite element model components for wireframe, surface and solid meshing
• Unique topology simplification to obtain a high quality mesh
• Multiple types of connections for meshing of an assembly
• Compatible and non-compatible meshing support
• Pre and post processing analysis package exchange
• Ability to perform assembly of analysis
• Take advantage of the 64-bit platform
• Full post-processing analysis on composites parts with embedded failure criteria specification
