Femap’s thermal solvers add state-of-the-art thermal analysis solutions to the Femap environment and provide fast and accurate solutions to complex thermal engineering problems.
Using finite-element mesh, finite-volume based numerical techniques, the Femap Thermal Solver makes it easy to model nonlinear and transient heat transfer processes including conduction, radiation, and phase change. Accurate thermal analysis can be performed quickly and effectively, delivering the engineering insight and turnaround speed needed to ensure success within today’s rapid development cycles.
Femap Advanced Thermal Solver adds a number of more advanced thermal modeling and simulation capabilities to the Femap Thermal Solver package including 1D fluid network modeling and free and forced convection. An extensive suite of thermal modeling tools are provided to allow users to define more advanced and sophisticated thermal simulations, such as radiation and spacecraft modeling, including solar and orbital heating, orbit modeling and display, ray tracing capabilities, and articulating structures. These extensive modeling tools are also complemented by a number of more advanced solver features such as custom user subroutines, model simplification, sub-structuring, and interfaces to industry thermal codes.
