Many structures in plant engineering are characterized as thinwalled. The Finite Element Method (FEM) is a common method used to assess the performance of such thin structures. Creating a FEM model of a thin structure involves midsurfacing models and meshing with shell elements. However, the process for creating FEM models is time consuming often requiring hours and days. The use of MSC Apex can help produce midsurface models significantly faster than with other traditional CAE pre/post processors. In addition to FEM creation, MSC Apex can be used to perform strength analysis.

  • Geometry is easily edited to construct FEM models rapidly
  • FEM models are validated for materials, properties, mesh congruency, connections and boundary conditions
  • FEM models may be exported from MSC Apex and used in a separate pre/post processor
