Simcenter Femap v2020.2 - Now Available!!

Simcenter Femap v2020.2 - Now Available!!

Dear Simcenter Femap Customer:
We are pleased to inform you that Simcenter Femap v2020.2 has been just released. Simcenter Femap v2020.2 is available for download from the GTAC FTP server, in the Femap – Femap 2020.2 - Full Install section.

Simcenter Femap v2020.2 is the latest user-focused release of Femap containing many features and enhancements requested by our users worldwide, along with important fixes for known issues.
The latest release provides a variety of enhancements that will improve your productivity across the simulation workflow. First and foremost, performance improvements throughout Femap should lead to greater productivity and quality of user experience, especially for those working with larger models.

The modeling process, whether starting with CAD geometry that requires defeaturing before being idealized or updating the existing mesh of a legacy model imported from a solver input file, has become more capable, robust, and consistent.

Direct interaction between Femap and Microsoft Excel provides seamless transfer of data used for both pre and post-processing activities, including the ability to quickly send large amounts of output directly to a formatted worksheet.

There are also several updates to solver integration for the multi-step nonlinear and aeroelasticity solution sequences of Nastran®, as well as updates for Ansys®, Abaqus® and LS-DYNA®.

Complete details of the new features and addressed issues in Femap v2020.2 (as well as all releases back to v10.0) can be found in the /pdf/readme.pdf file that is installed with Femap v2020.2.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Femap product.
The Simcenter Femap Team
